Ingredients

With a rich custard base topped off with a crackly, golden caramel shell, what’s not to love about this classic French dessert?

Let's start cooking!

Add vanilla essence and stirring into mixture

Step 1 - Boil milk and cream

  • Preheat oven to 120°C.
  • In a pot on medium heat, add milk, cream and 2 tsp vanilla essence. Stir constantly to mix well and ensure it doesn’t burn. Once it boils, remove from heat and set aside.
Mix batter

Step 2 - Mix batter

  • In a bowl, add egg yolks and sugar and whip until pale.
  • Add all the milk and cream Tbsp by Tbsp to the egg yolk, stirring to distribute heat. Mix well.
Pour mixture into ramekins

Step 3 - Bake and serve

  • Fill 5-inch ramekins about 80% full, then lightly tap on counter to remove air pockets.
  • Adjust oven settings to top and bottom heat, then bake at 120°C for 45 minutes in a steam bath.
  • Remove from heat, and set aside to cool. Once around room temperature, coat surface with brown sugar.
Once the batter is mixed, remove bubbles by lightly torching the surface with a blow torch.

Let's plate and serve!
