Method
  • ETAPE 1

    Preheat the oven to 125'C.

  • ETAPE 2

    Whisk together the egg yolks and the caster sugar. Bring the double cream and milk to the boil and then pour over the egg mixture, all the while stirring gently.

  • ETAPE 3

    Add the white chocolate to the hot custard base. Leave to sit for two minutes, then stir until completely dissolved.

  • ETAPE 4

    Pour the custard into individual ramequins.

  • ETAPE 5

    Place the ramekins in a tray of boiling water, transfer to the oven and cook for 45-60 minutes. The crème brulées should be just set, or a little wobbly.

    Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

  • ETAPE 7

    Once cool, sprinkle with the remaining sugar and then caramelise the sugar using a blow torch.

Chef's tip

«You can substitute any other chocolate for white, however, you may need to adjust the amount of caster sugar in the custard.»
