ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  • Whisk the cream, egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Mix it all up until it gets nice and creamy.
  • Pour this mixture into 4 ramekins (those little ceramic dishes).
  • Place the ramekins in a baking pan. Fill the baking pan with hot water, about halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Place the pan with the ramekins in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour or so. After 45 minutes or so check them every ten minutes. You'll know they're done when you can stick a knife in one and it comes out clean.
  • Remove the ramekins from the baking pan, set them on the counter, and let them cool for 15 minutes or so.
  • Sprinkle a thin layer of the light brown sugar on the top of each. Make sure it's a THIN layer, but also make sure it completely covers the custard. Now torch it! Or, if you don't have a torch, you can put them under the broiler for a minute or so.

    0 Stars if possible....After 45 minutes they were still watery. I cooked them for 30 minutes longer and they were firm only a 1/4 of an inch around the edges only. I shouldn't have Googled "Easy Creme Brulee".

    We ate the edges and my family laughed at the effort!

    Well, I don't know what I did wrong. There are only 2 of us, so I cut the recipe in half except I used 3 egg yolks. When it says blend until creamy, I thought I had done that good enough, but is there some way to know if it is creamy enough? Otherwise I cooked it as said, I guess I didn't see the "knife comes out clean" and took mine out after an hour and it never set up. We drank it like egg nog (lol). Help! This looks so good!

    Came out great but had to overcook it because my knife never came out clean. Other recipes cook "until the edges are set and the middle is slightly jiggly" which I'll try next time. Easy to make and everyone at Christmas dinner found it delicious. There's some great YouTube video hacks showing how to easily separate yolks using a plastic bottle.
