TWD: Creme Brulee

Mari of Mevrouw Cupcake has made an incredible selection for Tuesday With Dorie this week. Creme Brulee is one of my favorite desserts and it's something I'm only used to having after a fancy dinner. I always thought it was a tough dessert to make, but once I saw the recipe I was stunned. How could something so delicious only consist of 6 basic ingredients? I couldn't believe it. I've always had the ingredients in my kitchen and never knew that I could combine them to create creme brulee. The only problem we had with this dessert was getting our little torch to work. After caramelizing the sugar, we dug right in and enjoyed the creamy, silky, consistency of the custard. It was so delicious and such a nice way to end the weekend.

Don't forget to check Mari's blog for the recipe and th TWD site to see what everyone else thought of this dessert.

Lighting is so tough! I do most of my baking at night and there's never good natural light to work with. I think your creme brulee looks great despite the light!
