From CDKitchen. I've made this recipe many times and it's perfect every time.
Cook's Notes Below came over from CDKitchen with the recipe:
I've tried many recipes. All ended in yuckness. Granted, I'm no master chef. I'm sure those other recipes work fine if you really know what you're doing. But I don't want to have to go to culinary school. I just want a creme brulee.
So I'm talking to my mother on the phone tonight, as I'm about to embark on another creme brulee experiment, and she mentions, "Oh, well, your Aunt Carol makes a great creme brulee; it's always good."
So I called up Aunt Carol, got the recipe, gave it a shot, and what do you know? Perfect. So unless you're a master chef, return that double-boiler, forget about scalding the cream, don't fret about scrambling your eggs. Just follow this easy recipe for a creamy, great-tasting creme brulee
