Coffee and Baileys Creme BruleeIngredients for Coffee and Baileys Creme Brulee

150g mascarpone cheese
100ml double cream
50ml milk
1/2 vanilla pod
2 eggs
60g sugar
50ml Baileys
coffee essence to taste

How to make Coffee and Baileys Creme Brulee

  • Put the cream and milk into a saucepan. Using a small knife slit open the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds. Put seeds and the pod into the pan with the milk & cream. Heat up to scalding point (just before boiling).
  • In a mixing bowl combine the marscapone cheese, eggs and sugar. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the hot milk and cream mix into the bowl with the eggs, sugar and marscapone, and whisk. Stir in the Baileys and then pass the mixture through a fine sieve.
  • Add coffee essence until you reach the desired flavour. (Coffee essences/extracts vary in strength and quality, therefore we do not state an exact quantity.)
  • Pour the mixture into ramekins (or small serving bowls, heatproof). Place in a bain marie and cook in a pre-heated oven at 160°C / 320°F for around 40 minutes.
  • To check if the brulée are sufficiently cooked, tap the side of the ramekin while they are still in the oven and they should be just set in the middle.
  • When cooked, remove from oven and leave to cool, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle the top of the brulée lightly with caster sugar, and glaze with a gas burner.

Serving Suggestions:

We like to serve this particular créme brulée with pistachio nut shortbread.

Advanced Preparation:

These can be made up to two days before serving, but must be glazed just before serving, or the sugar dissolves and you lose the crunch of the caramel.
