Beat them with a hand whisk until they are mixed well: the mixture will lighten but it is not necessary to obtain an excessively foamy mass. Then add the milk and cream, pouring them slowly and stirring constantly. Transfer the mixture obtained to the special oven casseroles, filling them for about 3/4 of the capacity.

Crème brûlée preparation - Phase 3

Pour a couple of cm of hot water into a pan large enough to hold all the casseroles. Place the cocotte on it and bake in a preheated oven at 175 ° C for about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven, remove from the water and let cool. Just before serving, sprinkle the surface of each cocotte with brown sugar and caramelize with a special pastry torch. Alternatively, you can use the oven grill, at maximum power, under which the sugar melts in a few seconds. Serve the crème brûlée immediately.
