Introduction: Crème brûlée, a timeless French dessert, features a rich and velvety custard base topped with a caramelized sugar crust. This classic dessert is both elegant and indulgent.


  • Egg yolks
  • Granulated sugar
  • Heavy cream
  • Vanilla bean or vanilla extract
  • White granulated sugar (for caramelizing)


  1. Preheat the oven to a low temperature (usually around 300°F or 150°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks and granulated sugar until well combined and slightly pale.
  3. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds (or vanilla extract) to the heavy cream in a saucepan. Heat the cream over medium heat until it’s just about to simmer. Remove from heat.
  4. Gradually pour the hot cream into the egg mixture while continuously whisking to avoid scrambling the eggs.
  5. Strain the custard mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to ensure a smooth consistency.
  6. Pour the custard into ramekins or shallow dishes placed in a deep baking pan. Fill the pan with hot water halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  7. Bake the custards in the oven for about 30-40 minutes until they’re set but still slightly jiggly in the center.
  8. Once baked, chill the custards in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours or overnight.
  9. Just before serving, sprinkle a thin, even layer of granulated sugar on top of each custard and caramelize the sugar using a kitchen torch or broiler until it forms a golden-brown crust.

Suggested Serving:

  • Serve classic crème brûlée immediately after caramelizing the sugar for the perfect contrast between the creamy custard and the crisp caramelized sugar.

Benefits: Classic crème brûlée offers a delightful contrast of textures and flavors, making it an elegant and satisfying dessert choice.
