Sweet for My Sweet

There is nothing more delicious than this;)..

How to make a perfect creme brulee?

6 Eggyolks
6 tablespoons Refined Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
2. Beat the eggyolks, add sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl until thick and completely smooth.
3. When the cream is hot, whisk together the yolks, vanilla and sugar until well blended.
4. When cream starts to steam, turn off the heat.
5. Pour the hot cream into the eggyolks while whisking quickly. This will heat the yolks and reduce curdling. Skim the foam off using a strainer and throw away.
6. Remove the whisk from the egg, start whisking the cream. Pour the yolks steadily  into the cream by whisking it.
7. Pour the hot mixture into serving dishes and place in a baking dish. Then set the baking dish  with the rameskins in it on your oven shelf. Pour simmering water into the pan about halfway up the side of the rameskins.
8. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. They are done when you shake the dish gently and the brulees jiggle slightly in the middle.
9. Remove from the oven and let it cool in the waterbath. Then remove the brulees again, cover and  chill about 2 hours.
10. When ready to serve, sprinkle the top with granulated sugar evenly.
11. Use a propane torch to heat the sugar until it becomes brown. Stop when it reaches golden brown.
You can use the oven's broiling setting also to caramelize the sugar. Broil for 20-30 seconds.
12. Serve immediately. It can can be served slightly warm or chilled.
