Crème Brulee


Total Time: 55 mins
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 45 mins
Yield: 4 servings
Dish Size: 4-oz. ramekins



  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the eggs, milk, ⅓ cup sugar, vanilla, and salt together in a large mixing bowl, making sure that the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Pour mixture into the Brulee ramekins. Place the filled ramekins onto a tray or baking pan with raised edges.
  4. Fill the tray ⅓ of the way up with hot tap water, creating a water bath, and place the tray in the preheated oven.
  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and allow to cool on your counter. Remove the ramekins from the water bath and cool completely in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.
  6. When you’re ready to serve, sprinkle the top of each crème brulee with a ½ tablespoon sugar and place under your broiler until the sugar is caramelized.

Tara's Tip: You can also use a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar if you have one.
