Blueberry Vanilla Crème Brulee
Hello, I am Angie Ouellette-Tower from “God’s Growing Garden” & I am thrilled to be sharing this recipe with you today on “The Crafty Side of Sarcasm”!
The blueberry & vanilla flavors combined with the creamy texture of this dessert is a heavenly summer treat!
I used some of my own home-canned Blueberry Syrup for this recipe (click HERE to learn how to make your own Blueberry Syrup) (NOTE – I thickened my homemade Blueberry Syrup to use in this recipe). This is also great with Strawberry Syrup or Raspberry Syrup!!
1/4 to 1/2 cup Blueberry Syrup
In a medium size saucepan mix the cornstarch and sugar and stir until combined. Slowly add the milk & cream – whisking all the time until no clumps remain. Place on medium low heat and constantly stir until it starts to thicken – just before a full boil. Slowly “temper” the egg yolks by adding a cup of the hot mixture into a bowl with the egg yolks (you must whisk all the time to prevent the eggs from clumping and becoming stringy) – now add the “tempered” eggs into the remaining hot mixture. Return to the heat and continue stirring constantly and boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla until combined
Pour a thin layer (about 1/4 cup each) into 4 ramekin dishes & drizzle some blueberry syrup on top of this first layer (see picture below). Then on top of the syrup – spoon the remaining Vanilla custard into each ramekin (again about 1/4 cup in each)
Finally, place the sugar topped ramekins into the preheated broiler leaving the door slightly open. Burning the Brulee can happen in a matter of seconds – so check them after 1 minute and keep checking until the top reaches your desired color & texture (for no longer than 2 minutes).
Allow to cool at room temperature, serve & ENJOY!!
Note – if you cool the Crème Brulee in the fridge the candy topping will soften and become a little more like caramel – that is why I let it cool at room temperature.
