3-Ingredient Crème Brûlée

MAKES 4 / HANDS-ON TIME 10 min / TOTAL TIME 4 hours


    • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
    • 4 egg yolks
    • ½ cup sugar


PREHEAT oven to 160℃.

HEAT ice cream in a microwave-safe bowl until just melted. Whisk in egg yolks until combined. 

POUR liquid into four ramekins, then place the ramekins in a roasting tray. Carefully pour boiling water into the tray, filling it up ¼ of the way.

BAKE crème brûlées for 40-45 minutes, until just set but still slightly wobbly. Remove and set aside to cool for 10 minutes, then place in the fridge for 3 hours to set.

SPRINKLE 2 tbsp of sugar onto each crème brûlée and shake lightly to create an even coating. Caramelise the sugar using a blowtorch and serve.


Tip from the team: No blowtorch? No worries! Make a simple caramel for the top instead by swirling some sugar in a pan until golden. Carefully pour it onto your set creme brûlées, let it set and CRRRACK!
