3-ingredient crème brûlée

Serves 1



  • ½ a cup of vanilla ice cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar



Step 1

Scoop your ice cream into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds or until completely melted. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add the egg yolk into the melted ice cream and whisk until everything is fully combined and the mixture is smooth.

Step 3

Pour the mixture into an oven-safe ramekin and place the ramekin into a baking dish. Fill the dish with boiling water until it comes halfway up each side of the ramekin.

Step 4

Bake for 40-50 minutes at 160°c. The crème brûlée should be set but still jiggly in the centre. Allow to cool and then remove the ramekin from the dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Step 5

Remove the ramekin from the fridge 30 minutes before adding the sugar on top to allow it to reach room temperature.

Step 6

Sprinkle your sugar on top and using a kitchen blowtorch, torch the sugar until it gives a crispy top to your dessert.
