Crème Brulée with Tropical Fruit

Chef admin | Restaurant

Once you have tried this recipe, no other crème brulée will ever taste as good. The thick, rich custard with crisp brown-sugar topping is our favorite.

    Ingredients

    • 2 Kiwis
      4 lg. yolks of Eggs
      2 cups Heavy or whipping cream
      1/4 cup Sugar
      1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
      3 tblsp. Brown sugar
      2 medium Nectarines
      1 (star fruit) Carambola
      1/2 cup Raspberries
      1/2 cup Blackberries

    Directions

    1. 1) In 1-quart saucepan over medium heat, heat heavy or whipping cream until tiny bubbles form around edge of pan.

      2) Meanwhile, in heavy 2-quart saucepan, with wire whisk or fork, beat egg yolks with sugar until well blended. Slowly stir in hot cream. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and coats a spoon well, about 15 minutes (mixture should be about 170 to 175 degrees F. but do not boil or it will curdle). Stir in vanilla extract.

      3) Pour cream mixture into six 3- to 4-ounce heat-safe ramekins. Refrigerate until well chilled.

      4) About 3 hours before serving, preheat broiler if manufacturer directs. Place brown sugar in small sieve; with spoon, press sugar through sieve over top of chilled cream mixture.

      5) Place ramekins in jelly-roll pan for easier handling. Broil 2 to 3 minutes until sugar just melts. Chill. The melted sugar will form a crisp crust over the custard. If the crust is done too early, the sugar will become soft and lose its crisp texture.

      6) To serve, cut nectarines into wedges; peel and slice kiwifruit. Slice carambola. Place each ramekin on a plate with some nectarine, kiwifruit, carambola, and berries.
