Cooking Recipe

Servings: 1
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
1 extra-large egg
3 extra-large egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar, plus 1 tbsp for each serving
3 cups heavy cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the egg, egg yolks, and 1/2 cup of the sugar together on low speed until just combined. Meanwhile, scald the cream in a small saucepan until it's very hot to the touch but not boiled. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the cream to the eggs. Add the vanilla and orange liqueur and pour into 6 to 8-ounce ramekins until almost full.

3. Place the ramekins in a baking pan and carefully pour boiling water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the custards are set when gently shaken. Remove the custards from the water bath, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate until firm.

4. To serve, spread 1 tablespoon of sugar evenly on the top of each ramekin and heat with a kitchen blowtorch until the sugar carmelizes evenly. Allow to sit at room temperature for a minute until the caramelized sugar hardens.
