The directions are sketchy at best. I had good results only b/c I know how to make creme brulee. I chose a different method entirely to make this. I blended the egg yolks & sugar together and placed this in a double boiler, and added the vanilla and cream. I continually stirred this mixture until it had thickened. I then poured it into ramekins and refrigerated it. After it cooled I used a finally ground turbinado sugar (raw sugar) and carmelised it w/ my butane torch. Simple recipe but given the instructions wouldn't recommend this to a beginner.
i love the taste but a bit sad when i tried to caramelised the top with oven broiler and the whole contents shinks.. i was left with a small amount of creme brulee to eat. I would recommend to add more egg yolks and whipping cream.
