The creme brulèe which literally means burnt cream, is one of the spoon desserts French most appreciated and known. There crème brûlée it is a cream based on eggs, fresh cream, and vanilla, it is cooked in small single-portion cocottine in a double boiler and then covered with sugar and caramelized thus forming a sugar crust.
I love this kind of desserts, and this one in particular, together with the Catalan cream, is a dessert that I often order at the restaurant when I find it on the menu, simple, perfectly flavored and with that crunchy crust that goes well with the English cream, from when I discovered that preparing this classic French pastry at home is so simple, I prepare it often and this among the recipes I tried is the one I prefer :)
How to make crème brûlée
Pour the cream into a thick-bottomed pot, add a vanilla pod cut lengthwise and bring to a boil.
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar and a tablespoon of orange liqueur
As soon as the cream has reached the boiling point, remove it from the heat and add it a little at a time, through a sieve in order to filter the vanilla seeds, to the egg and sugar mixture.
Stir to mix the ingredients well.
Pour the mixture into small ovenproof dishes
and put them to cook in a bain-marie in a pan containing boiling water and covering the cocottine up to half of their height
Bake the creme brûlée in a preheated oven at 160 ° C for about 60 minutes.
