Lemon curd Creme brulee

(6 servings)


600 ml double cream
zest and juice of 1 lemon
6 egg yolks
150 grams lemon curd (I used this recipe)
(Is the same  for Ice cream lemon curd)
60 grams caster sugar plus extra to sprinkle


Preheat oven to 150°c .
Put the creamand zest in a pan and bring just to the boil. Beat the egg yolks in a bowl with lemon juice, lemon curd and caster sugar. Pour in the cream and whisk well.
Strain the custard trough a sieve in a large jug..
Pour into the ramekins. Put the dishes in a roasting tin and pour hot water into the tin about 2 cm.
Bake for around 25 minutes, until still wobbly in the centre. Remove from the roasting tin and leave to cool then refrigerate until cold.
Sprinkle a thin, even layer of caster sugar over the surface of each creme brulee. Caramelise under the grill or with a blow torch until golden brown. Allow the caramel to cool and harden before dusting with a little icing sugar.

Creme brulee de limon

Me encanta el creme brulee y más si es con lemon curd. 
Es absolutamente delicioso.


600 ml the crema espesa o para batir
jugo y ralladura de 1 limon
6 yemas de huevo
150 gramos de lemon curd (use la misma receta del helado con lemon curd y además es en microondas)  ver aqui
60 gramos de azucar  más un poco más para espolvorear
azucar glass para espolvorear


Precalentar el horno a 150 grados C.
Colocar la crema y ralladura de limon en una ollita y calentar y dar un hervor.
Batir las yemas de huevo en un bowl con el jugo de limon, el lemon curd y el azucar.
Agregar a la crema y batir bien.
Pasar por un colador y dejar en una jarro.

Distribuir en los pocillos o ramekins. Colocar los pocillos sobre una fuente con 2 cm de agua caliente (baño maria)

Hornear por unos 25 minutos, hasta que el centro este un poco burbujeante. Retirar del horno y dejar  enfriar. Luego refrigerar. 
Esparcir una capa de azucar antes de servir y con un soplador o antorcha de cocina o el grill  dorar hasta que este color caramelo. Dejar enfriar y endurecer antes de servir.
