How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • On medium heat, boil 1 quart of heavy whipping cream along with vanilla beans (strip beans out and put entire stalk in the cream) Bring to a boil and then remove from heat, cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Seperate eggs (reserve egg whites for another recipe or discard)
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix egg yolks and 1/2 cup of sugar
  • Stir cream mixture in with the eggs, a little at a time, until blended well
  • Pour mixture into six ramikins and place them in a large roasting pan
  • Pour hot water into pan, making sure that it does not get into the ramikins, until the water is half way up on each ramikin
  • Bake custards in water bath for 45 to 60 minutes, or until set (edges are a little brown and solid while center wiggles like jello)
  • Remove raminkins from water bath, let cool to room temperature and put in the refridgerator overnight or up to two days.
  • Before serving, spread remaining 1/2 cup of sugar evenly over each custard
  • With a kitchen torch, burn the sugar until it is carmelized and hard
  • (If you do not have a kitchen torch, you can place all of the raminkins back in a water bath (this time with ice water to keep the custards cooker) put them in the broiler for about five to ten minutes, keep checking them.. the sugar will bubbly...
  • serve and enjoy! :)
