Creme Brulee

Served in a small ramekin, one portion at a time, crème brûlée is sweet, silk-smooth egg custard with a crisp, burnt-sugar top. Ideally, it is created just before serving, which means the top still will be warm (having been blow-torched) and the custard below it will be cool. The exalted pleasure of the dish has inspired menu writers to christen just about anything with the burnt sugar/cream flavor as crème brûlée: French toast, cappuccino, ice cream, donuts, cake, even flavored popcorn.
