WOW I have to wholeheartedly say, this is probably the best recipe I've pulled from this site. Hubby and I were at a fancy restaurant the other day and had some superb creme brulee, so of course I wanted to try at home. This is even better. It's a tad time consuming, but not really all that difficult. I heated the cream and sugar to about 140 degrees with no problems. I whisked briskly but tried to not get it frothy. I had no lumps or froth. The hardest part is dealing with the water bath, transferring everything in and out of the oven. Mine made 4 medium and 3 small ramekins. All set up absolutely perfect. Husband had a fun time torching the sugar in the raw we used on the top. Which by the way, tasted great but was probably too course to melt exactly right. Simply unbelievable texture and taste! The irish cream with the creme brulee is divine and melds perfectly. Reviewers aren't joking, the irish cream flavor comes through very well. I might even lower the amount if I make it again. I will definitely make this again the next time I have a craving, or if I truly want to impress someone at a dinner party.
