Method

  2. Beat yolks and sugar until pale. stir in the chocolate cream. Strain into a jug and pour into ramekins. Place in a deep roasting tray and pour boiling water halfway up the sides. Bake for 15-20 mins until just set with a wobbly centre. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hrs.

  3. To serve, sprinkle some sugar on top of the brûlées and caramelise with a blowtorch or briefly under a hot grill. Leave caramel to harden, then serve.

Lovely flavour but like so many other comments it took far longer to cook these than the 15-20 minutes quoted (at this point they were still very liquid). Mine took 40 minutes before they set and I made 8 small ramekins, so I would have thought this would have been quicker than the time quoted! Therefore I have only given it three stars as I feel that the recipe cooking time is wrong.

Very quick, very easy! I made this just for my fiance and I, so I cut the recipe down to 1/3 (190g cream, 33g choc, 2 egg yolks, 2 tsp sugar, and 1/2 tsp vanilla ext), and it actually fit perfectly into my ramekins. Very creamy, although my qualm lies with my fiance, who bought cheap tesco white chocolate because the only other one he was was Lindt's "Touch of Vanilla" and he thought that meant it was no good. Never trust a man when picking out chocolate!

This was the first time I had ever made creme brulee but it was the most easy process and I have made it countless times since as my family adore it!

Has anyone tried this recipe in an Aga? I wonder if it will cook ok in the bottom (simmering) oven?

I made it yesterday in the highest rack of the simmering oven. It works! I kept an eye on the time as some people have expressed the need for a longer cooking time, but these took 20 mins.

Have made these twice now for dinner parties and they have gone down a storm, I made 4 larger ones so just cooked them for a little bit longer - fabulous!
