Creme Brulee

I made awesome creme brulee for my friends when they came over for a party. Yum yum! My friend took this recipe off of, and gave it to me. I changed it up a bit, added my "easy cooking" tips to it.

8 egg yolks
600 millilitres fresh cream
100 millilitres milk
100 grams sugar
150 grams fine brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 100 degrees Celsius.

Combine the egg yolks, cream, milk and sugar in a mixing bowl. Whisk and pass through a fine sieve into a jug. Pour the egg mixture into small ramekins, or ceramic little cups!!!

Bake in the oven for 1.5 hours to 2 hours. just see that it is firm-wiggle it around, stick a toothpick thru it, make sure its not soupy! Remove, cool and refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours...if you like your brulee cold. They are really yummy warm as well.

Since we're talking about ricer cookers; DID YOU KNOW YOU COULD ALSO PUT the ramekins in the rice cooker and press "cook" for 30minutes....and get the exact same creme brulee? AMAZING!

Just before serving, sprinkle the top of each portion with a thin layer of brown sugar. Caramelise the sugar with a blowtorch and serve immediately. (dont worry about caramelizing if you dont have the blowtorch, it just makes it look nice.)
