Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • To sugar-coat the cooled custards, hold a strainer over each ramekin and press the brown sugar through. The even layer of brown sugar on the custards will melt evenly under the broiler. Ramekins are small, individual-sized baking dishes made of porcelain, earthenware or glass. Look for them at kitchen specialty shops.
  • To make Classic Crème Brûleé, omit the rum, brandy and nutmeg. Increase the vanilla to 1 1/2 teaspoons.
