Creme Brulee

(Baked Custard)



Recipe By - Chef Edward


Yields; 6 servings



Ingredients -

4 C. Heavy Whipping Cream

1 vanilla bean or 1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract

10 egg yolks

1/2-cup sugar

1 Tbsp. Butter

Procedures -
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. It is a good idea to check your oven accuracy with one of our

oven thermometers. In a heavy bottom saucepan combine the cream, butter, half of the sugar and
the vanilla, bring this to a boil, stirring constantly. Be careful not to scrape the bottom of the saucepan.

In a stainless steel mixing bowl use a wisk to beat the egg yolks and remaining sugar until it is smooth and light. Gradually add the hot cream mixture to the egg yolks stirring constantly. Pour this mixture into a measuring cup and divide into six shallow cups (soup cups or ramekins). Place the cups on a baking pan add warm water to the bottom of the pan, it should come up the cups one third of the cup side.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the custard is set (the custard should not wiggle in the center). Remove from the oven and let cool for one hour. Place in refrigerator and chill. To serve sprinkle each with a half teaspoon of granulated sugar and lightly brown the sugar with a Chef Torch. We like a sprig of fresh mint and raspberries for the garnish. Serve immediately. The creme Brule can be refrigerated for up to three days.
