Preparation: 15 min; cooking time: 1 hour

Serving 6


3 vanilla beans

1 cup of milk

1 cup of heavy cream

6 ¼ oz. sugar

8 large egg yolks

6 tbsp. brown sugar (for serving)

Fresh red fruits (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackcurrants for serving)


Cut the vanilla beans in half on a cutting board and scrape the seeds with a sharp knife.

Put the vanilla beans and seeds in a medium saucepan. Add the milk and heavy cream. Bring to a boil on medium heat. Turn the heat off and infuse the vanilla beans 45 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until well combined. When infused, pour the milk-cream-vanilla mixture, through a fine colander over the eggs and sugar, stirring constantly.

Pour the crème brulee preparation, over a fine colander, in 6 flat ramekin dishes. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour until the crème brulee is set.

Remove the crème brulee from the oven. Let cool down at room temperature on a cooling rack. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

Before serving, sprinkle evenly a thin layer of brown sugar on each crème brulee. Use a kitchen torch to melt and caramelize the sugar.

Serve immediately with fresh red fruits.
