Shyla’s Crème Brûlée


  • Preparation time: 10 min
  • Cooking time: 35 min
  • Total time: 45 min
  • Serves: 10-12
  • Difficulty: Easy


  • 4 cups Full cream
  • 6 Egg yolks
  • 1 Egg (whole)
  • Vanilla essence or Amaretto
  • ¾ cup White sugar
  • ½ cup Brown sugar for the topping


Boil the cream till scalding point. In a large mixing bowl beat together the egg yolks, whole egg and sugar. Add vanilla or Amaretto to the mix. Add the hot cream to the egg mix and continue beating. Spray 12 oven- and broiler-proof ramekins and place them in a pan. Fill the bowls with the mixture. Fill the pan with water up to ¾th height of the bowls. Bake in the middle of the oven at 350oF for 30 min. The custard must be a little wobbly. Do not overcook. Take the bowls out of the water. Dust by sieving brown sugar evenly over the custard. It should be a nice thin layer. Spray them. Place in a pan. Fill the bowls with the mixture. Place in a flat tray and broil under the broiler at 450oF till the sugar is caramelized. Keep a watch over the ramekins to avoid burning the sugar layer.
