- Preheat oven to 100* C (212* F) Fan.
- Position oven rack on the highest level (above the middle level so that the air circulating can easily reach the bottom of the baking pan).
- In a large bowl, add the egg yolks. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar. Whisk together until the mixture turns white.
- Add the heavy cream, milk and 1 tablespoon of sugar to a large pot. Cut 1/3 of the vanilla pod with a sharp knife. Slice it in half and scrape out its seeds into the pot.
- Place the pot over high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. As soon as it comes to a boil, remove from heat. We don’t want the mixture to boil much.
- Use a ladle to add 3 spoonful’s of the hot mixture into the bowl with the eggs, while continuously mixing with a hand whisk. We want to slowly heat the egg yolks with the hot mixture.
- As soon as the yolks are heated, transfer the mixture from the bowl back into the pot. Add the new mixture to a measuring cup.
- Place 6 ramekins into a shallow baking pan.
- Fill the ramekins with the mixture with the measuring cup.
- Add 3 fresh raspberries to each ramekin.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes.
- When ready, remove from oven and allow to chill for a bit in the refrigerator.
- When chilled, sprinkle with some sugar and burn with a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar and make a crunchy topping.
If you don’t have a kitchen torch, you can put them back in the oven, set to broiler and position your oven rack on the highest leve. In this way you can caramelize the sugar in the oven too!
