SumoWeekends: Earl Grey Creme Brulee Recipe

Happy 2016!
Here’s wishing everyone a year filled with love, happiness, and great feasting! For a fresh start to the new year, here’s a refreshing Earl Grey-infused Creme Brulee in the form of Winnie the Pooh! As intimidating as the name of this dessert sounds, it is actually incredibly simple to make and only requires a few steps.
When it’s cold, nothing beats the sensation of a warm cup of tea resting in the palms of your hands. On rainy days in particular, Earl Grey is often my go-to comfort tea for a bold flavour to warm my soul. Earl Grey has a strong taste and is thus often used in desserts, but if you want a classic creme brulee, don’t incorporate the earl grey in the recipe.
 As always, take part in our giveaway to stand a chance of winning a box of Pooh macarons! More details on Project Weekend’s Facebook. Good luck and all the best in this new year!

Servings: 3 deep ramekins or 5 to 6 shallow ramekins
Time: 20 minutes active time, 50 – 60 minutes baking times
3 egg yolks
30g of Caster sugar
200ml of Fresh cream
150ml of Milk
2 bags of Earl grey tea
Granulated sugar for topping
1. In a pot, bring the fresh cream, milk and earl grey to a simmer. Infuse the tea bags for a few minutes.
2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks and caster sugar well. Gradually pour in the mixture in 1 while continuously stirring.
3. Strain the mixture with a sieve.
4. Scoop the mixture into ramekins and bake with a bain marie (i.e. water bath) in a preheated oven at 130°C for 60 minutes. If your ramekins are shallower, then it’d require a shorter time of about 50 minutes. To know when it is ready, give the ramekins a gentle shake and it should wobble slightly.
5. Once baked, let the creme brulee cool in the fridge till it is hardened.
6. Before serving, sprinkle the top with granulated sugar and place it in the oven on broiler setting (heat from top only) for a few minutes. Alternatively, use a torch to crystalise the top. Let it cool slightly before serving.
Dig in!


Mondays are not just blues after all ^^
