FFwD - Creme brulee

This week's French Friday with Dorie sees us making a French classic - creme brulee.  Although I am an avid eater of creme brulee, I have never made it myself before, primarily because I don't have the equipment to make the sugar crust.

On this occasion, I simply put my brulee under the broiler.  The sugar crust was not as crunchy or evenly melted as if I'd used a torch, but it was good.  My ramekins are obviously larger than Dorie's, so my poor brulee looked a bit lost in its enormous ramekin:

but it tasted good!
