    Default Vanilla Creme Brulée

    Vanilla Creme Brulée

    6 egg yolks
    2 cups milk
    2 cup cream
    1 1/2 cups vanilla sugar
    1 vanilla bean (or)
    1 teaspoon pure ground vanilla (or)
    1 teaspoon vanilla nectar


    1. Preheat oven to 400F.

    2. Grease 6 Custard cups with butter or vegetable oil spray.

    3. Bring the milk to a boil. Remove & add vanilla bean or pure ground vanilla or vanilla nectar. Cover and let infuse for 20 minutes.

    4. Beat eggs with sugar until creamy. Add infused milk, cream and then whisk.

    5. Fill 3/4 of each custard cup and place them in a roasting pan.

    6. Add 1 inch very hot water to roasting pan around the custard cups.

    7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes (10 will give you a smooth custard.) Then remove from oven and cool at room temperature.

    8. Before serving, sprinkle vanilla sugar on top and broil in the oven or torch to perfection.

    Serve immediately for best results. Serves 6.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Creme Brulee one of my favorites. Try 2-4 TBL fresh chopped ginger instead of the vanilla for a change. Just steep it per above instructions strain before adding to the rest of the ingred.

    Vanilla sugar is made by taking the dry vanilla bean and cutting it into small pieces and putting it in a sealed container with regular sugar. You let it set for several weeks and the sugar will take on the flavor of vanilla. People use it to sprinkle on toast or other deserts to give them a little extra 'wow'.

    I would just put it in the food processor and make a pouder out of it, like cinnamon. Wouldn't that work too?

    not really the vanilla has to be in the sugar to give it flavor. It doesn't really become a powder if put in a processor it is too moist.
