Crème Brûlée is like Coco Chanel’s little black dress. Perfection in its simplicity. Perfection in its execution. Designed to impress but not to over-power. Always in good taste. And the memorable ending to any dinner.
If you only make one dessert in your life – make it crème brûlée and make it yours. My new recipe is similar to the dessert we served in our restaurant ROXY’S BISTRO, but I have simplified it and made it practically fool-proof.
Generally I make the classic version – with vanilla. Or, feeling creative I’ll poke around in the drinks cupboard and use cognac or Grand Marnier as the flavouring. One can even put a generous dab of jam in the bottom of the ramekins before you pour your custard. Like Chanel’s little black dress – the possibilities of changing this recipe are endless.
This recipe contains only three ingredients – eggs, cream, sugar and flavouring. It takes just a few minutes to whip up then into the oven it goes.
Put on your apron and come into MRS BUTTERFINGERS kitchen and make CRÈME BRÛLÉE.
