The first Barefoot Blogger recipe for November is an Absolute Winner! Crème brulée was the choice of Suzie from Munch + Nibble.
It was so easy to make, too. While my egg yolks and sugar were gently mixing, I heated the cream in the microwave, using my 1-qt glass measuring cup.
Then I slowly poured the cream into the egg/sugar mixture.
When it was blended, I poured the cream/egg/sugar mixture back into the measuring cup. It was a piece of cake to fill the glass ramekins.
Just before serving, I use my handy little torch to caramelize the sugar topping.
The texture on these brulées is fantastic -- so velvety and smooth. Although there's a bit of Triple Sec in mine, it was barely noticeable. May have to use more next time, because it does add a little something extra.
I highly recommend this particular Crème brulée recipe, both for the ease of preparation and the deliciousness. Go on over to the Barefoot Blogger site for more opinions.
