It’s been a long time coming, but I’m thrilled to finally share my favorite crème brûlée recipe. It’s an indulgence that seems way more complicated than it actually is. Only 6 basic ingredients required, my crème brûlée is flecked with espresso and flavored with pure vanilla. The brilliantly creamy custard can only be reached by cracking through a crisp caramelized sugar ceiling. The textural difference between the two layers is unbelievable and separates this dessert from any other custard.
