Take a damp kitchen towel and place it in a deep casserole dish. Add vanilla cream and egg mixture to 6 ramekins and place them on top of towel in the casserole dish. Fill the casserole dish ⅔ of the way up on the ramekins with boiling water.

5.

Place in a 300°F oven and bake for 24-40 minutes depending on the size and depth of your ramekins. (Remove with they reach 175°F)

Remove from the oven and let them cool for 1 hour or until room temperature. Once they’ve reached room temperature, place on a baking sheet, cover, and place in the fridge for 4 hours.

7.

After they’ve been in the fridge for at least 4 hours, remove from fridge and place raw sugar on top of your creme. Using a torch, slowly torch the top of the sugar to caramelize it and make it hard.
