Recipe by LoriInIndiana
READY IN: 5hrs 25mins
YIELD: 6 brulees




  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees farenheit.
  • Whisk together egg yolks, granulated sugar, and salt in a bowl until combined well.
  • Place this custard mixture into a 2qt saucepan.
  • Using the tip of a knife, scrape seeds from vanilla bean into cream, then add pod.
  • Heat over moderate heat until hot but not boiling.
  • Discard pod and add cream to egg mixture in a slow stream, whisking until combined.
  • Spoon 1/4 c mango into each ramekin.
  • Pour custard through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl, then ladle over mango.
  • Arrange ramekins in a roasting pan and bake in a hot water bath in middle of the oven until custards are just set, 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Transfer custards with tongs to a rack to cool, then chill, uncovered, at least 4 hours.
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Sprinkle turbinado sugar evenly over custards and broil in a shallow baking pan (5 to 7 inches from the heat) until sugar is caramelized, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • *Note* A blowtorch can be used to caramelize the sugar topping instead of the broiler.
