      When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Gently massage the bag to ensure that all of the ingredients are well-mixed. Divide the custard between four ramekins.

    • Step 1

      Once it’s cool to the touch, cut off one corner and fill 3-4 ramekins. Place the ramekins into the refrigerator for 4 hours.

    • Step 2

      Once 4 hours have passed, remove the ramekins from the fridge and sprinkle the top of each custard with 1/2 tablespoon sugar.

    • Step 3

      Brown the sugar with a kitchen blowtorch or under the broiler until the sugar is dark golden brown and bubbling, being careful not to burn the top.

    • Step 4
