Fresh apricots: It is the star of the recipe. The freshness of apricots gives your taste buds a burst of vibrant flavors. Choose ripe apricots for a juicy and succulent texture.

Lemon juice: A touch of lemon juice enhances the custard’s natural brightness and citrusy flavor. It perfectly balances the dessert’s overall sweetness and refreshing element to the flavor profile.

Heavy cream: Heavy cream is the key to the luscious and velvety custard. It complements the fruity notes of apricots and ensures the delight’s creamy consistency.

Granulated sugar: It sweetens the custard and helps achieve a satisfying caramelized crust. You can use raw sugar, brown sugar, or other sweeteners to make the delight.

Vanilla extract: The infused flavors of vanilla extract add aroma. Its subtle sweetness also enhances the flavors.

How to make Apricot Creme Brûlée?

Step 1: Prepare apricot puree

Add apricots, lemon juice, and water to a pan and let it cook. Keep stirring the fruit mixture until it softens. It may take 5 minutes.

Pour this fruity blend into a bowl and mash or blend the apricots to get a smooth texture like a puree. Set it aside for later use.

Step 2: Prepare Brulee

Preheat the oven before preparing the crème to 325 degrees. Cook the heavy cream and apricot puree in a pan on medium heat until simmering.

Remove it from the stove and strain the mixture from a strainer in a bowl.

Step 3: Blend other ingredients

egg yolks for Creme Brûlée

Whisk sugar and egg yolks in a separate container until airy and fluffy.

Temper the eggs and sugar mixture in the cream mixture slowly until well combined. Add vanilla extract and sea salt.

Step 4: Bake the Apricot Creme Brulee

Divide the mixture between 6 and 8 ramekins, greased with oil. Place them on a wide-rimmed tray.

Fill the tray with water until the water reaches half of the ramekin edges. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.

Step 5: Pan out the Brulee

Remove the tray from the oven and remove the tin of the Crème Brulee from the tray that you fill with water. Refrigerate it until set.

Chill it before serving, sprinkle some sugar on top, and caramelize it with a kitchen torch.
