This classic French dessert literally means “burnt cream”. Rich and creamy custard is sprinkled with sugar and caramelized to form a sweet and crackling crust. Creme Brulee is a great choice for your next dinner party because it can be made up to 2 days in advance.
Crème brûlée (French for “burnt cream”; pronounced “krehm broo-LAY”) is a dessert consisting of a rich custard topped with a thin layer of hard caramel, created by burning sugar under a grill, a torch or other intense heat source. Creme Brulee is served cold in individual ramekins.
