Haven't tried this one yet, but seeing as I love both crème brûlée and whiskey, I'll have to soon! Recipe from Glorian ruoka&viini magazine.
- 4 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 200 ml milk
- 200 ml whipping cream
- 50 ml whiskey
- brown sugar or muscovado sugar
- Preheat oven to 120°C
- Whip yolks and sugar until light. Stir in milk, cream and whiskey.
- Pour into 4 buttered ramekins. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 1,5 hours (start checking early, the time depends on the depth of the ramekins).
- Take out of the oven and allow to cool completely; then place in the frige for a few hours.
- Just before serving, sprinkle brown or muscovado sugar on top of each cold crème brûlée. Caramelize the sugar by using a torch or putting under a broiler. Work quickly - sugar should caramelize but the crème brûlée should still be cold!
Delicious elegant dessert that's really pretty easy to make! I made half the recipe in 2 ramekins and it did take the full 1 1/2 hours to cook. Nice rich taste, not too sweet, and the whiskey was there but the flavor was not overpowering. Loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by Mikekey
Great dessert! Very flavorful. The low oven temp. was fine, but I did put my ramekins in a pan and poured hot water about halfway up before baking, like my grandma taught me :) The brown sugar caramelized under the broiler very quickly. Will be making this one again! Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
Stormylee, I made this as one dish rather than as small ramekins for nine guests and family at a lunch meeting. I wasn't completey sure if the oven temperature was correct for this, 120C seemed *very* low to me ?.. I did start off with my oven on 180 C for the first 10 minutes as I was scared it wouldn't cook otherwise, and then turned it down.. in the end it all came out Ok after 1 hour and 18 minutes and the only other slight problem that I had was that my sugar wanted to burn and not caramelise ! so it was a tiny bit extra dark in some places on the top. Luckily none of it *tasted* burnt and as you can see by the photo I wasn't even quick enough to get a photo of the whole dish! Please see my rating system, a lovely 4 stars :) Thanks !
