This simple cherry creme brûlée is silky and melts in your mouth. It has a delicate flavour of baked woody cherries and you’ll find little pieces of cherries throughout! The burnt sugary crisp topping finishes off the dessert and is what gives the creme brûlée its signature name!
I did not use red food colouring in this recipe (just to give you an idea of what the natural colour is).
If you don’t have a chef’s torch you can broil the tops. Place the ramekins (approx. 2 at a time) on a baking sheet. Arrange the rack in the oven to the highest position and broil for approx. 5 minutes. Watch carefully and if possible rotate the ramekins with tongs to evenly broil the tops. A chef’s torch is faster, safer and easier. You can buy a cheap one online (just don’t forget to buy the fuel for the torch too).
