Village Tavern features a scratch kitchen, where artisan recipes are prepared to order with top quality ingredients. The crème brûlée is no exception. Made from scratch, the dish features a traditional sugar coated topping with a smooth creamy center, perfect for anyone craving a sweet bite!
- 2 quarts of heavy cream
- 2 Cups sugar
- 1.75 Cups egg yolks
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
- Sugar, to top
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Combine cream and sugar in a sauce pot and heat sugar until it is dissolved and cream is hot.
Place yolks in a large, stainless steel bowl. Stir warm mixture into yolks a little at a time so that the temperature of the yolks increases gradually. Be sure not to separate eggs.
Add vanilla extract and strain mixture.
Fill sheet trays with crème brûlée dishes. Fill dishes with 4 ounces volume of mixture. Carefully place in the oven and pour hot tap water onto sheet pans 2/3 of the way up the dish.
Bake at 275 degrees for 60 minutes. Product should be barely set in the center. Remove and cool for 30 minutes at room temperature and then refrigerate.
Sprinkle sugar on top of the brûlée.
Using a blow torch, caramelize sugar to desired doneness.
