Directions

  1. Whisk yolks with 1/4 cup sugar and salt in a bowl until smooth; gently whisk in cream and vanilla extract. Strain custard mixture into a liquid measuring cup. Watch Now
  2. Line bottom of a 6-quart oval slow cooker with a folded kitchen towel to create a level surface so ramekins won't slide around. Set four 4-ounce ramekins on the towel. Fill slow cooker with enough water to come halfway up sides of ramekins. Watch Now
  3. Pour custard evenly into ramekins. Drape paper towels over top of slow cooker liner to absorb any condensation during baking; cover with lid to secure. Watch Now
  4. Cook on Low until custard is set but jiggles slightly, about 2 hours. Watch Now
  5. Transfer ramekins to a rack to cool completely, about 45 minutes. Refrigerate custards, uncovered, until cold, at least 3 hours. Watch Now
  6. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar over each ramekin and shake gently to distribute evenly. Heat the sugar using a culinary torch until melted and browned, about 1 minute. Watch Now

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you have vanilla bean paste, substitute that for more vanilla flavor.
  • The water bath helps keep the custards from drying out, and the towel underneath helps them cook gently and evenly.
  • If you do not have a culinary torch, place ramekins on a baking sheet and broil until sugar layer is browned, about 1 minute.

This is awesome. Just one point to make. Leave it in the fridge overnight to get the right consistency of the custard. 3 hours wasn't enough. So glad I found this. Thanks!
