Creme brulée

Como ya he dicho anteriormente la creme brulee se puede hacer en diferentes formas. Esta es bastante liviana lleva menos huevos y solo 1 taza de crema.
Si no se tiene la antorcha para dorar se puede usar el grill del horno.

(6 a 8 porciones)
4 yemas
3 claras
1/2 taza de azúcar
2 cucharadas de harina sin polvos de hornear
1 cucharada de ralladura de limón
1/2 taza de jugo de limón
1 taza de crema espesa
1 pizca de sal
azúcar adicional para dorar (unas 2 cucharadas)


Precalentar el horno a 170°c.
en un bowl mezclar la crema, jugo de limón, harina, ralladura de limón porner a fuego suave y darle un hervor.
Bajar el fuego y cocinar a fuego suave unos 5 minutos siempre revolviendo.
Apagar y reservar.
En un bowl mezclar las yemas y el azucar y agregar a la crema de limón.
Batir las claras con la pizca de sal y agregar a la crema de yemas y limon.
Repartir la crewma de limon en los ramekins o bols de cerámica y colocar en una fuente con agua hasta la mitad, colocar en el horno de 20 a 25 minutos o cuando ya se vea la mezcla firme.
Cuando se enfria se pone mas firme.
Espolvorear azúcar y dorar con la antorcha o en el grill.
Dejar enfriar antes de servir.
