Crème Brûlée

My family and I decided to spend this beautiful Sunday in the City.  I did not cook as we ate out.  Before we left, my daughter Yanah and I made one of her favorite desserts: crème brûlée so we could enjoy later while reminiscing about our day.

Crème Brûlée


3 eggs yolk

¼ cup sugar + 1 tbsp for each serving

1 ½ cups heavy cream

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp orange liquor

1 pinch of salt

Whipped cream, strawberries, and blackberries to decorate

My kitchen Torch


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees

In a small saucepan on a low heat, slowly heat the cream to a simmer but not boiling

Use an electric mixer to whisk sugar, salt, egg yolks, orange liquor, and vanilla in a bowl.  Slowly add the cream to the egg mixture on low speed.

Pour the batter into 1-inch deep ramekins and place them into a deep roasting pan.  Pour boiling water into the pan, enough to come up halfway on the ramekins.  Bake for 35 to 45 minutes.

Remove custards from water bath and let cool at room temperature for about 20 to 30 minutes.  Set them in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours.  When ready to serve, let them come to room temperature for about 15 minutes, top each one with 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar. With a small kitchen blowtorch, heat the top of each custard until the sugar caramelizes evenly but does not burn.  Serve with fresh blackberries, strawberries, and whipped cream.

My ramekins

I am not a chef, but I enjoy cooking and creating simple, easy, and delicious dishes.  Hope you love this delightful dessert and remember to share your thoughts with me.



  1. Every time I see a creme brulee I think of Amelie and how she loved the sound of the crust breaking under her spoon! Great recipe looks delish!

  2. OHHHH MY!!! This looks incredible! I don’t think I would’ve ever attempted creme brulee, because it seems so intimidating, but I just might now.

  3. Desserts are my fave! I’m gonna try this out. Thanks for sharing ♥️ ♥️ By any chance you are interested on doing collaborations, you can check out the collaborations portal of and connect with amazing brands!


  4. Thank you for providing a recipe that seems relatively easy ? I’ve always cut corners and prepared with lower heat and without a water bath, but I think I may have to try making them the real way too ?

  5. I recently got brûlée ramekins and a torch (had a gift card to a place and that was the only thing that jumped out at me). Love your presentation…and with stone fruit season upon us, I think I just might have to make this and pair it with some grilled nectarines!
