Ingredients

2 cups of heavy cream

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

1/2 cup sugar, plus extra for topping

6 egg yolks

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees
  2. Pour the cream into a small saucepan and then the vanilla extract. Let the cream come to a boil. Then reduce the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Put the sugar and eggs in a heatproof bowl and beat with a spoon. Pour the hot cream into the egg mixture, beating as you pour until the mixture has thickened. Pour the mixture into a wide, flat dish and lay it in a roasting pan. Boil a saucepan of water and carefully pour the hot water into the pan so that it comes halfway up the sides of the dish.
  4. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for 30-45 minutes or until the custard has set.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature. Sprinkle a little sugar over the custard, then gently caramelize it using a kitchen blow torch or by putting it under a hot broiler. Let cool for a few minutes, then serve.
