A straightforward and unpretentious creation that is so simple, so rich, so praised!
"Wow, this was actually really good! The recipe is simple to follow and requires very few ingredients. I was also complemented heavily by my other family members. One thing I do have to note that this shouldn't be eaten regularly because it's essentially cream and sugar. Next time, I'll try a twist with the ingredients, perhaps a caramel or pumpkin version. Thanks!"- siddharthadesai

Top-ranked recipe named "Classic Creme Brulee"
Preheat oven to 300ºF. In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is thick and pale yellow. Add cream and vanilla, and continue to whisk until well blended. Strain into a large bowl, skimming off any foam or bubbles.
Divide mixture among 6 ramekins or custard cups. Place in a water bath and bake until set around the edges, but still loose in the center, about 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven and leave in the water bath until cooled. Remove cups from water bath and chill for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days. When ready to serve, sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of sugar over each custard. For best results, use a small, hand-held torch to melt sugar. If you don't have a torch, place under the broiler until sugar melts. Re-chill custards for a few minutes before serving.

CherieBonine 1 year agoIt's imperative you let this dish chill! I, of course, found that out the hard way and only waited an hour and had one early. The one I tried the next day was absolutely amazing! Can't wait to make this again!!

TuiakiMom 2 years agoI have used this recipe like crazy and still get fantastic compliments on it! I just want to say if yours turns out too thick it might be because you put the egg white in, you really do need to put ONLY the yolks, also make sure you haver ouch water in the pan or it will take longer to cook and be too thick! ;)
