Ingredients
Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium sauce pan, heat the cream and vanilla to a simmer. Remove pan from heat and let sit for 10 minutes. In a bowl whisk together the sugar and yolks until they are a pale yellow. Whisk cream into the egg mixture and pour into 6 custard dishes.

Place dishes in a large baking dish lined with a towel. Pour boiling water into baking dish so that it comes to half way up the custard dishes. Bake for 30 minutes or until custard is firm but still wiggles. Chill for at least one hour. Top with brown sugar in an even layer and place under broiler until sugar melts and bubbles. Serve at room temperature.

Is easy to make. Only complaint is it takes longer than 30 minutes to cook...it took me about 1.5 hours and it probably could have still cooked longer. Overall, a good recipe though. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Absolutely delicious! I put blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries in ramekins and then poured the creme brulee over the top. It took about 10 minutes longer to bake. What a treat!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Like what some people have experienced, 30 minutes was too short. Custard was too runny. Next time I may put in a little less milk and add 15 more minutes to the baking at least. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor was excellent, but didn't get the texture I'm used to in a creme brulee...maybe it was just me! Family enjoyed it enough to request it again. Need to figure out what to do for a firmer texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so simple and delicious. Maybe it's the simple, uncomplicated ingredients that make it so good. It's even better if you substitute a real vanilla bean (or even 1/2 of one) for the extract. item not reviewed by moderator and published
