Vanilla Crème Brulee

Servings 4 servings


  • 375 ml. (1 1/2 cups) heavy cream
  • 1/2 vanilla bean split and grated
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 60 grams (6 tbsp.) sugar
  • Sugar for burning


  1. Preheat oven to 140c degrees, and place a tin with boiling water on the oven floor.
  2. Put heavy cream, sugar and vanilla beans in a medium saucepan and heat to a boil.
  3. Beat the egg yolks in a small bowl.
  4. After the cream mixture has reached a boil, drain it and pour about 1/3 amount of cream to the yolks while whisking (in order to avoid coagulation). Then blend in the remaining cream.
  5. Let the mixture stand for about a minute, so the foam formed during maddened rise up. Skim off the foam (remove it using a spatula or spoon) and transfer to your baking molds.
  6. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the cream is set at the edges but slightly soft in the center. Cool completely in the refrigerator.
  7. Burn and serve: put some sugar over each creme brulee and burn with your torch until the sugar is caramelized. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • You can keep the crème brulee (before burning) wrapped in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • You can also freeze it up to one month.
  • For nondairy version - use coconut cream instead of heavy cream in the same amount.
