Mother’s Day Recipe: Mum’s Vanilla Spiced Creme Brulee

Crème brulee is my dessert of choice if it’s on the menu when I go out for a meal. Many of my girlfriends are also fans, so I reckon this dessert is a guaranteed winner for Mother’s Day. And you’ll get extra Brownie Points for making it yourself!

Serves 4

  • 2 ½ cups (625ml) thickened cream
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 3 tbs caster sugar, plus 1/3 cup extra for brulee top
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • Mixed berries, to serve

1. In a Pyrex 4 cup capacity glass jug, combine cream, yolks, vanilla, sugar and cornflour and whisk. 
2. Microwave on high for 5 minutes and whisk. Continue microwaving in 1-2 minute increments until custard thickens to a dollop consistency. 
3. Divide custard between four Pyrex 1 cup capacity glass prep bowls.
4. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of caster sugar over the surface of each custard in an even layer. Use a blowtorch to caramelise the sugar until golden. Serve with mixed berries.

Tip: Make these up to 5 days in advance and store covered in the fridge. Just dust with sugar and torch right before serving.
