This week’s TWD recipe is CrÃ¨me BrÃ»lÃ©e. It needs a blowtorch. Much to the dismay of #1 Son, who has been looking for an excuse to make crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e for well over a year now, I could not justify spending $32 for a blowtorch at Wegman’s last week, and Target doesn’t carry them.
However, now that I’m writing this I finally went to the Tuesdays With Dorie page and read all the comments there, and it turns out I could have found a much cheaper torch had I shopped around a bit (I hate shopping), and that I could have caramelized the sugar under the broiler instead. But I didn’t, and it’s too late now. Sorry, #1 Son. It also turns out I could have made something else from Baking: From My Home to Yours. Anything I wanted! And had a good excuse!!! But again, I failed.
So, if you want to read about some yummy and no doubt gorgeous crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e, check out all the other TWD bloggers. And if you happen to have a blowtorch and want to try it yourself, the recipe will be posted at Mevrouw Cupcake.
