Orange Spiced Creme Brulee

Orange Spiced Creme Brulee

  • 1 pot of double cream 
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 4-6 tbsp light brown sugar to top
  1. Preheat oven to 120C.
  2. Combine the milk & cream in a saucepan, & boil.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, whisk the egg yolks, white sugar, vanilla, orange rind, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt so it mixes.
  4. Add a little bit of the hot cream mixture to bowl and whisk, slowly add the rest of the hot cream mixture whilst continually mixing. 
  5. Make sure there are no bubbles in the mixture then add them to ramekins - I had enough mixture for 3 ramekins.
  6. Place the ramekins on to a baking dish that is deep.
  7. Fill the baking dish with boiling water so it reaches halfway up the side of the ramekins & bake for 25 minutes until the custard is set
  8. Once the custard is set, leave the ramekins to cool to room temperature.
  9. Cover each ramekin with a layer of light brown sugar.
  10. Place ramekins on a baking dish (without boiling water this time) and grill until the sugar has caramelised - again take the ramekins out & leave to cool until the sugar hardens.
