Creme Brulee for Two

Recipe by JennCal
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 2 ramekins




  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Heat heavy cream and 1/4 cup sugar over high heat until little bubbles form around the edges. Remove from heat.
  • Whisk egg yolks and vanilla in a bowl, then add a tiny bit of cream mixture while whisking.
  • Continue adding cream mixture bit by bit until gone. You don't want to add the hot cream mixture all at once because it'll cook the yolks.
  • Pour into two creme brulee ramekins.
  • Place ramekins in a baking dish with edges taller than the ramekins.
  • Carefully pour enough water into the baking dish to halfway cover the sides of the ramekins. Be sure not to get water in the ramekins.
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Carefully remove from oven and let cool.
  • Remove ramekins from baking dish, cover with clear wrap, and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours.
  • When ready to serve, sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of sugar evenly over each ramekin, and torch in slow, steady circles until sugar caramelizes.
