French Food Friday...White chocolate crème brûlée


 photo and recipe from here


 
 
Bonjour mes belles,

I am happy that it is Friday as this week has been a particularly challenging week and not one that I want to repeat in a hurry hence I will be happy to get this one out of the way and start a fresh one.
 
Hence I feel that some chocolate is required and as a lover of white chocolate this is exactly what is required after a hard week at the "office".

White chocolate crème brûlée 

 Serves 8


 INGREDIENTS

  • 568ml pot double cream
  • 100g good quality white chocolate , broken into pieces
  • 1 vanilla  pod, split or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6  egg  yolks
  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar , plus extra for topping

 METHOD

  1. Heat the cream, chocolate and vanilla pod in a pan until the chocolate has melted. Take off the heat and allow to infuse for 10 mins, scraping the pod seeds into the cream. If using the vanilla extract, add straight away. Heat oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3.
  2. Beat yolks and sugar until pale. stir in the chocolate cream. Strain into a jug and pour into ramekins. Place in a deep roasting tray and pour boiling water halfway up the sides. Bake for 15-20 mins until just set with a wobbly centre. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hrs.
  3. To serve, sprinkle some sugar on top of the brûlées and caramelise with a blowtorch or briefly under a hot grill. Leave caramel to harden, then serve. 
 
...bon appetit à tous, Leeann x
