This creme brulee was super fast and easy and turned out to be so good, without double broiling or straining..! It made 4 servings for me because I used the shallow, 3 oz, creme brulee ramekins and it took only 30 minutes for the creme to set. I added 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to the 2 tablespoons of white sugar for better "bruling ". Also, my torch was out of butane, so I broiled the chilled creme, 6 inches away from the heat source, for 3 minutes and then put back in the fridge for 15 minutes to harden the sugar crust.
So this recipe works quite well. I like the microwave solution for heating the cream. Be sure to use 35% whipping cream, and if you have vanilla bean at home, it adds a more interesting dimension as opposed to vanilla extract. Just shave some of the bean into the cream when heating it up.
The taste is exquisite. I followed the directions and subbed some homemade lavender extract for the vanilla extract. Perfect. Dressed it with a couple of raspberries and boom! Christmas eve dessert. Thanks.
This is a great , easy recipe. I multiplied it by 6, as the family was coming. I only had 2 cups whipping cream, so I used 4 cups coffee cream. They came out perfectly and only took 40 minutes in a 6 ounce ramekin. My son had 3, and my hubby keeps sneaking to the fridge. He knows how to use the torch now. I’m going to be asked to make this again.
