Serves 4


175ml Guernsey double cream
60ml The Estate Dairy milk
1 vanilla pod seeds removed
4 Cracklebean egg yolks
50g Billingtons caster sugar
50g Demerara sugar
punnet of Oakchurch raspberries

Caramel Toppings 
100g Billingtons caster sugar


          1. Pre-heat the oven to 120ºC.
          2. Whisk together the cream, milk, vanilla, eggs and sugar.
          3. Place the raspberries into the 4 ramekins and then pour over the Crème Brûlée. Move into a tray with water that comes halfway up the ramekins.
          4. Cook for 45 minutes in the oven then leave to cool.
          5. Chill the Crème Brûlée in the fridge for 1 hour.

            For the caramel topping
          1. Place the caster sugar into a pan and allow it to slowly melt. Cook until you get a nice golden colour and pour onto a tray to cool and set hard. 
          2. Once cooled, crack and place into a food processor, then blitz into a powder. Place in the freezer until required. 
          3. Once the Crème Brûlée is set, dust well with the caramel powder and blow torch until golden.
