  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups 35% cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar


Preheat oven to 300°F. In medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, egg and sugar until smooth; set aside. In small saucepan, heat cream, milk and vanilla over medium heat. Remove and slowly pour hot cream mixture into egg mixture, whisking constantly to temper eggs. Strain mixture through fine-mesh sieve into clean bowl. Cool bowl over ice bath, whisking constantly to prevent film from forming.

Preheat oven to 300°F. Pour custard mixture into 6 ramekins. Place into baking pan containing 1/2 inch of water. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until custard jiggles slightly when shaken. Chill 2 hours.

Dust tops with brown sugar. Place under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, or until sugar melts and turns golden brown.
