Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 45 minutes Total time: 1 hr 5 mins
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup coffee creamer
- 1 vanilla bean (split and scraped)
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (+ more for garnish)
- 4 egg yolks
- hot water
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Add the cream, coffee creamer, vanilla bean and its seeds to a medium saucepan that is set over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture is boiling, remove the saucepan from heat, cover with a lid and allow sitting for 15 minutes. Remove the vanilla bean and discard.
- In a medium bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the wire attachment, whisk together on medium-high speed 1 tablespoon of sugar and the egg yolks until well combined, the mixture must start to lighten in color and become fluffy.
- Whisk in the cream, adding it slowly, a little at a time, whisking and stirring continually. Stop the mixer, scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again on medium-low speed for a few seconds to make sure that the mixture is well blended.
- Pour the liquid into 4-5 ramekins.
- Place the ramekins into a large roasting pan and pour enough hot water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
- Bake just until the creme brulee is set, but still trembling in the center, about 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the ramekins from the roasting pan, let them come to room temperature after that refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.
- The creme brulee must be removed from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to browning the sugar on top. Sprinkle the tops with 1 tablespoon of sugar and using a torch, melt the sugar and form a crispy top. Let it sit for at least 5 minutes before serving
