Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250ml cream
200ml milk
1 vanilla pod, split lengthwise
4 egg yolks
120g caster sugar
30g brown sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C.
  2. Combine the cream, milk and vanilla pod in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then turn off the heat and set aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Combine the egg yolks with 80 g of the caster sugar in a bowl. Stir in the milk mixture. Strain into a jug, then pour the mixture into six 185 ml ramekins.
  4. Place the ramekins in a roasting tin and two-thirds fill the tin with hot water. Carefully place the tin in the oven and cook for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool in the liquid. Refrigerate when cold.
  5. Mix the remaining caster sugar with the brown sugar, then sprinkle evenly over the crèmes. Place the crèmes under a hot grill until the sugar has caramelised, then serve immediately.
