French Food Friday...Plum and Cardamon brûlée

recipe and photo from here

Bonjour mes belles,

It is that time of the week again and I am in the mood for my favourite dessert...I love Crème brûlée  and this particular recipe has an exotic twist to it as it contains a touch of cardamom and it reminds me of the time that I spent in India. The plums are the SW France part as we live in the area which as you know by reading my blog is known for its lovely plums. Hence this is a melange of France meets India....

Plum and Cardamon brûlée

Serves:  6
Preparation time: 10 minutes plus chilling time
Cooking time: 30 minutes

You will need
4 plums
6 egg yolks
6 cardamon pods, crushed
300ml double cream
250ml Greek yoghurt
1 tbsp caster sugar, plus 2 tbsp for the top
1.Heat the oven to 150°C/gas mark 2. Cut the plums into small chunks and place in the bottom of six ramekins.
2. Place the cream and cardamon pods in a pan and heat to just below boiling. Take off the heat and leave to infuse for thirty minutes. Whisk the egg yolks with the caster sugar and add the yoghurt. Whisk the yoghurt mixture into the cream. Strain the custard to remove the cardamon then pour over the plums into the ramekins.
3. Place the ramekins in a small roasting tin and pour hot water into the tin to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake for twenty to thirty minutes until the custards are just set.
4. Cool then chill for two to three hours or overnight. Just before serving, sprinkle some caster sugar about two millimetres thick over the surface of the ramekins. Brown under a very hot grill or melt with a blowtorch until the surface is gold and caramelised.
très bon vendredi à tous, Leeann x
