July 21 is National Crème Brûlée Day. Celebrate by creating this tCarmalized Crème Brûlée dessert! It is tres magnifique!
I was pretty intimidated the first time I made this recipe. Crème Brûlée sounded a bit too fancy for my taste. But after looking at the ingredients needed I decided to give it a go. This recipe has 5 simple ingredients. It's a bit time intensive, but I like to make it the night before so only have to heat up the custards before serving. Since I hadn't worked with a kitchen blowtorch before, I took the time to understand the tool. It's important to read the directions before operating a kitchen blow torch and to be careful not to allow children to use it. If you're not comfortable using a blow torch you can use your oven instead. Move the wire rack to the top setting in your oven. Next, set your oven to broil. Then, cook the custard ramekins in the baking pan on the top shelf for 5 to 10 minutes or until the brown crust is formed over the top.
If you've never tried Crème Brûlée you're in for a treat. The cream, salted caramel milk, and sugar forms a sweet custard with a crunchy shell over the top. The salted caramel milk is the perfect flavor for this recipe.
