Last week a lovely lady came by to get some vanilla pods for her Creme Brulee recipe. I was thinking it might be awesome if I blog this recipe out and you may try it at home.
Here is the basic item that you must have in your kitchen:
4 egg yolks
Heavy cream (125ml)
4 tbs sugar
Vanilla beans (from fresh pods)
Pinch of salt
First, break the eggs and separate the yolks from egg whites. Set the yolks aside.
Second, put 4 tablespoon of sugar in another bowl. Pour in the heavy cream. Make sure you put the bowl in a microwave for a while to melt the sugar for 2 minutes. Stir the mixture well.
In the mean while, whisk the yolks just to break them apart. Slowly.
Pour the yolks into the cream mixture. Stir well. Don't forget to scrape the vanilla beans from its pod for flavouring and a pinch of salt to the mixture.
Next, prepare the remekins. If you don't have, just use any bowl which is suitable for baking.
Arrange the remekins in a large roasting pan. Fill the pan with some hot water. (we use water bath technique)
Bake @ 180 degrees in 40 minutes. The end product should be wobbly. Let it cool for a while and put them to refrigerate in the fridge for few hours.
For cool effect, before serving, pour some sugar on top of remekins and torch it with butane torch.
Else, just melt the sugar under the broiler.
Can't wait for your comment! See ya!
