Baking with Dorie: Crème Brûlée

Crème Brûlée is French, and any French dessert must be good, oui?

These are absolument renversant - absolutely amazing!

Cream, milk, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk makes one creamy and satisfying dessert!

This month's Baking with Dorie bake was chosen by BWD founder Grapefruit. Take a peek at her beautiful Crème Brûlée, recipe included here.

For me personally, Crème Brûlée is an icon for desserts! It's been on my to-do list for ages and I'm glad Grapefruit chose this recipe for BWD.

I wish I had a blow torch to play around with, but I didn't - so I used my broiler to caramelise the sugar. I didn't get a thick layer of burnt sugar but the crunch was there!

I wish I took better photos, but these were shot at 5am this morning and I don't have good lighting in the house! Can't wait to have some for iftar later!


  1. Looks absolument perfect! I had the last one for iftaar last evening & can't wait to make more again (with variations).
    Thanks for baking along!

  2. The dessert came out well, even without a torch.
    Looks delicious.
