Creme Brulee

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 4


  • 5 large egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee powder optional
  • Pinch of salt


  • In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until smooth.
  • In a pot, mix the heavy cream, vanilla extract, espresso powder, and a pinch of salt. Heat it up over medium-high heat until it’s almost boiling. Be careful not to boil it!
  • Pour the hot cream into the egg yolk and sugar mixture slowly, whisking constantly. This step is crucial to keep the eggs from curdling.
  • Distribute the creamy mixture into shallow ramekins (8 oz) and place them in an oven-safe dish.
  • Pour water into the baking dish around the ramekins, about halfway up their sides. Be cautious not to get water into the custard.
  • Bake in a 300°F oven for around 30 minutes until set. You want them to have a slight jiggle – not too much, not too little.
  • Take the Crème Brûlée out of the oven and carefully remove it from the water bath. Let it cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Sprinkle sugar on top of each Crème Brûlée and use a blow torch to toast the sugar until it’s a deep golden brown.
  • Serve and enjoy your homemade, creamy, and delicious Crème Brûlée!
