Simple strawberry brûlée
In this simple strawberry brûlée, chopped berries and whipped cream are put in little ramekins, topped with brown sugar and grilled. Chelsea Dark Cane is especially good for this.
|2 tsp||Caster sugar, optional|
|1 dash||Vanilla essence/extract, optional. Use also sherry or marsala.|
|4 tsp||Dark cane sugar, heaped|
- Wash, hull and slice the strawberries. Whisk the cream and sugar until fairly firm and combine with the berries, adding a flavouring if you wish.
- Pile into 2 or 3 small ramekins and spread the dark brown sugar evenly over the top of each.
- Place under a hot grill for a few minutes until the sugar melts but doesn't burn. Serve immediately.
