In this Crème brûlée video tutorial you will learn how to make the classic French version of the creme brulee recipe. using milk, cream, no bain marie and a kitchen blowtorch.

Crème brûlée (also known as burnt cream, crema catalana, or Trinity cream) is a dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a layer of caramel. It is normally served cold. The custard base is traditionally flavored with vanilla.

A word about caramelizing:

When the custard is ready, Just before serving, take the crème brûlée out of the fridge and sprinkle a layer of sugar on top of the custard, as evenly as possible. Per (4-ounce) ramekin, use between 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon of sugar (depending on the form of the ramekins and your own taste). There are different tools to caramelize the sugar and create the crunchy sweet caramel crust on top of the crème brûlée.

To caramelized the creme brulee use one of the three method that are discussed in the video : the culinary torch, the broiler and the flambee method.

The ideal is to caramelize the top of the crème brûlée without heating up the custard filling below. In any case: make sure not to burn the sugar/cream! After caramelizing, you can serve the crème brûlée immediately

250 ml %3.7 fat milk, 250 ml %35 fat cream, 4 yolk, 90 g sugar, 100 C oven baking in 45 min. There is a problem with this recipe that results in juicy milky dishes. So sugars have sank down in creme.

Jim Daveluy says:

Made this for my first attempt at homemade Creme brûlée. It was wonderful! The Creme was perfect. I didn’t get all of the sugar to dissolve but the strainer caught it. Also, tried white and brown sugar for brûlée and preferred the white. All in all, so happy, will definitely keep this one around. Thanks, inspired to try other recipes of yours.

Gabi BenAlex says:

How much sugar?

Kevin Slover says:

Success on the first attempt! Your instruction was the magic ingredient. The cook time was about 1:20 but it turned out perfect. Without knowing the wobble test I would have failed. You’re a great instructor.

I have made cream brulee it was amazing

Roxana Etemadi says:

My five-year-old was enthralled… until you got to "of course no children around when you're using a blow torch." "Why no children," he demands to know. I told him it's because kids run around and don't listen, and if they bump the person with the blow torch the next thing will be the entire kitchen burning down. He tells me, "I don't do that, so I can be around." Maybe he can watch from the next room. But he loves your channel, and we gets lots of inspo for stuff to cook together, so THANK YOU!

Juliette B.H says:

What do you use in France instead of thick whipping cream? Crème entière liquide à 30%? That is the only thing besides crème fraîche that you can find in the supermarkets.
