    500ml Double Cream

    2 Vanilla Pods

    6 Large Egg Yolks

    50g Caster Sugar

    6 tsp White Sugar to glaze


    Preheat the oven to 110°C/Fan 90°C/Gas Mark ¼.

    In a pan add the cream and vanilla pods. Bring to the boil but do not leave to boil.

    In a bowl with an electric or hand whisk beat the sugar and egg yolks together.

    Carefully pour the vanilla cream into the egg and sugar mixture and mix well.

    Using a sieve and bowl strain the mix and pour into 6 shallow dishes.

    Put the dishes into a roasting tin. Add hot water to the tin so it comes halfway up your dishes. Bake in your preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until the mixture is set.

    Remove from the oven, allow to cool and place in fridge until ready to glaze.

    To glaze the brulée, sprinkle a teaspoon of white sugar evenly on each brulée.

    Place under a very hot grill until the sugar has melted and the brulée are golden. If you have a kitchen blowtorch, use this to melt the sugar.
