  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Brown sugar


  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, bring cream almost to a simmer. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a bowl, beat egg yolks, vanilla, sugar and salt until thick and lemon-colored, about 3 minutes. Gradually beat in cream. Pour into an ungreased 1-qt. baking dish. Place baking dish into a 13x9-in. baking pan. Pour hot water into baking pan to a depth of 1 in.
  3. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with enough brown sugar to cover the top.
  4. Broil 6-in. from the heat for 2 minutes or until sugar is melted. Serve immediately.
