I always order this dessert when we’re out to dinner and I see it on the menu. It’s one of those classic desserts that never gets old and always tastes delicious. And my favorite part, the caramelized sugar on top! I recommend topping your creme brulee with loads of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. You’ll love the combination of smooth and sweet vanilla custard with the fruity berries.
Also, serve this creme brulee with a lemon wedge. Squeeze a little bit of lemon juice over the dessert right before enjoying to add a touch of needed citrus flavor. My sister-in-law shared this little tip with me and this dessert hasn’t been the same since!

I use this convenient kitchen food torch for caramelizing the sugar on top. You’ll need a butane fuel canister to go with it.
These classic custard ramekins are most commonly used for creme brulee.
Use a large baking or casserole dish for baking the custard in the ramekins. This set of 2 Pyrex glass dishes are my favorite!
