Nans Crème Brulee is a thing of beauty. Every Sunday lunch was finished off with a crème brulee dessert. Weekends were good but having Nan speciality made it brilliant. The crunchiness of the sugar with the silkiness of the filling always made you wanting more. Add a little fruit and clotted cream was a good way to end the weekend.

  • Preheat the oven to 165C/325F.
  • Place a medium sized saucepan over a medium heat.
  • Add the double(heavy) cream and the vanilla extract and heat until hot but not boiling.
  • In a glass bowl add the 6 egg yolks and 100g of the caster sugar and whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Gradually and carefully pour in the cream and vanilla extract to the eggs mixture. Stir continuously.
  • Pour hot water into a high sided roasting pan. The ramekins should sit in the water about half way up.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the ramekins and carefully, they’re hot, place them in the roasting pan.
  • Place in the preheated oven for 45 – 50 minutes. The dessert should be nearly set but still a bit wobbly.
  • When cooked. Remove from the oven and remove from the roasting pan and allow to cool naturally.
  • Once cooled, cover with cling film and refrigerate for a few hours or up to a couple of days in the fridge.
  • When ready to use, remove from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature.
  • Spread a tablespoon of caster sugar over each brulee.
  • Remove the crème brûlée from the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before browning the sugar on top. Spread a tablespoon of sugar on top of each crème brûlée.
  • When ready allow the crème Brulee to sit for a few minutes so the caramel has a chance to cool.
