Well, today I went to my grandma's house, and while we where baking muffins she asked me if I knew any recipe for creme brulée.. And.. well... I told her I didn't knew anyone, but that I could try searching for a not-so-complicated one over the internet.
She said that that would be great, but that it would be better if someone that had tried the recipe before gave us some advice, so I said I'll ask here...
So, if you've made creme bruleé before, please pleaaaase help us   Undecided

BTW, my first language is Spanish, so sorry if I didn't make myself clear in some points  Tongue

This recipe is from about.com. Made it once and it was OK.

INGREDIENTS:
4 cups whipping cream
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
8 egg yolks
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1/4 cup Demerrara Sugar or Sugar in the Raw

PREPARATION:
Preheat oven to 300°F.

1. Pour the cream into a saucepan, add the vanilla bean and scrapings. Simmer over low heat for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow vanilla to steep for 20 minutes.

2. Whisk the egg yolks and superfine sugar together.

3. Whisking constantly, slowly pour the yolks into the cream.

4. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over med-low heat for for 6-8 minutes or until thick enough to coat a spoon.

5. Remove the vanilla bean and strain into 6 (6-oz) ramekins.

6. Place the ramekins into a baking dish and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the side of the ramekins. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the custard is set.

7. Remove the ramekins from the dish, allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate for 1 hour or until cold.
T
o serve:
Just before serving: Sprinkle each ramekin with some Demerrara sugar and use a torch to carmelize the sugar.
