One of my favorite desserts to order at a restaurant is creme brulee. I love the rich creamy custard topped with the light coating of caramelized crunchy sugar. Are you with me? However, sometimes I am hesitant to order it because I have had some not so great creme brulee before. I decided to finally attempt to make it at home. This recipe for quick creme brulee is so easy and so yummy too. If you are a creme brulee fan or have a mom who is a fan you must make this.
Now, you can do the traditional caramelized sugar on top if you have a torch. I had heard you can broil it in the oven if you don’t have a torch, but I tried this and it DOES NOT WORK. So don’t do it. It makes the cream part bubble and get yucky! However, if you don’t have a torch, no need to fear. These are just as yummy with some fresh fruit or you could even make a simple berry sauce. Here are some recipes that I think would work well if you want to do a berry sauce.
For a Mother’s Day gift, you could make this in new ramekins dishes and give mom a copy of the recipe to make it in the future again. You could even include a torch like this torch set that includes four dishes from Amazon.Print
