Crème Brûlée Recipe

(Yield: 8 ea)


32 oz cream

14 ea yolks

8 oz sugar

1 tsp vanilla


  1. Scald cream (200 degrees), blend together yolks, vanilla and sugar.
  2. Temper yolk mixture with hot cream.
  3. Skim off foam.
  4. Pour mixture into brûlée dishes. Set dishes on a flat sheet pan and set in a 350 degree oven.
  5. Pour hot tap water into pan to create a deep bath.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes or until set. Chill.
  7. When the custard is cool and set, pour enough granulated sugar on each one that there is a small amount of excess that slides around the top.
  8. Using a torch, carefully scald the sugar so it caramelizes but does not burn. Let the sugar top sit for at least a minute before serving.
