Nutrition: per serving



  • 600 ml Double Cream
  • 6 Egg Yolks
  • 75 g Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 150°C/300°F/Gas Mark 2.
  • In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the cream until it just starts to simmer.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined.
  • Slowly pour the hot cream into the egg mixture, whisking constantly until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a large jug, then use the jug to pour the mixture evenly into the ramekins.
  • Place the ramekins in a deep baking dish and fill the dish with hot water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the custard is set around the edges but still slightly wobbly in the centre.
  • Remove the ramekins from the baking dish and allow them to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until completely chilled.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of caster sugar over the top of each custard, making sure it's spread evenly. Place the ramekins under the grill on a high heat for 2-3 minutes or until the sugar has caramelized, or use a kitchen torch to brulee the sugar until it turns a rich brown colour.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious creme brulee!
