Ingredients to make Ginger Lime Crème Brûlée

  • For Custard:

  • 100g sugar
  • 1″ piece ginger, grated

How to make Ginger Lime Crème Brûlée

  1. Preheat oven to 170C°. Place 4 3/4 cup ramekins in 1 pan.
  2. Place cream, sugar, ginger, lime zest and scraped vanilla bean in a heavy-duty pan over low heat. Simmer until the sugar melts, stirring often. Turn off heat, cover and allow flavours to infuse for 10 minutes.
  3. Place yolks in a large pan and whisk with a balloon whisk. Strain the infused mixture over the yolks and blend well to mix.
  4. Divide between the four ramekins. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come up halfway up the ramekins.
  5. Carefully transfer pan to oven. Bake custards until almost set in center when pans are gently shaken, about 45 minutes.
  6. Using metal spatula, transfer custards in dishes to cooling rack.
  7. Chill for at least 3 hours. {or overnight}
  8. Make Brûlée
  9. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons sugar evenly over each custard. Working with 1 custard at a time, hold blowtorch so that flame is 2 inches above surface.
  10. Direct flame so that sugar melts and browns, about 2 minutes.
  11. Refrigerate until custards are firm again but topping is still brittle, at least 2 hours but no longer than 4 hours so that topping doesn’t soften.
  12. Garnish crème brûlées with fruit if desired.
