Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 6

This Orange Crème Brûlée is fresh, rich and delicious. Double (heavy) cream, fresh orange juice, vanilla seeds and that crisp caramelised topping make this dessert a surefire winner!


  • 500ml (18fl oz) double (heavy) cream
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 100g (½ cup) granulated sugar, plus extra for the caramel layer
  • 50ml (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) orange juice, freshly squeezed


  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C/275°F/gas mark 1.
  2. Pour the double cream into a saucepan. Spilt the vanilla pod lengthways and scrape the seeds from a vanilla pod in the cream Chop the vanilla pod into bits, and add them to the cream. Bring the cream to a boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes, whisking continuously until it thickens.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until pale and creamy, then bring the cream back to a boil. Immediately add the hot cream whisking continuously for a few minutes until it thickens (indicating that the eggs have begun to cook slightly), before adding the orange juice and zest.
  4. Strain through a sieve into a large jug using a rubber spatula to help the mixture through, then pour the mixture into 6 ramekins. Place the ramekins into a roasting tin and fill with a couple of inches of boiling water, enough to cover up to ¾ of the ramekins sides.
  5. Bake for around 30 minutes, or until they have set on the sides, but still wobbly in the middle. Allow to cool completely before transferring to the fridge.
  6. Before serving, sprinkle around 1 tsp of granulated sugar evenly over the surface of each crème then caramelise with a mini blowtorch. Alternatively, place under the grill for around a brief minute or so until the top gets caramelised.
  7. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes, then serve.


If you happen to have a blood orange, use that baby instead! Of course, a regular sweet jaffa orange will be almost as good too.
