Easy Crème Brûlée | No Blowtorch / Waterbath / Straining / Heating Recipe

2 egg yolks,
2 tbs sugar,
2 tsp vanilla extract,
2/3 cup of heavy cream

1. Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until smooth. Add in the vanilla extract and mix in well.
2. Whisk in the cream until well combined.
3. Transfer mixture into a measuring jug/container with a spout for ease of distribution.
4. Pour into two 5oz ramekins and bake at 120c for 45 minutes.
5. Once baked, remove from the oven and then let cool completely before refrigerating for 5 hours to set.
6. Spoon over a thin, even layer of sugar on top.
7. Heat the back of an old teaspoon on an open flame for around 3-5 minutes.
8. Place the heated spoon on top of the sugar to caramelise. Ensure that the whole top is caramelised throughout by spreading the spoon around gently.
9. Serve immediately to experience the delicious, thin layer of caramel that needs to be cracked through to reach the creamy custard.
