Lavender crème brûlée

I have another amazing recipe for you. Everybody probably knows Crème brûlée, but have you ever tried it with lavender blossoms? Here comes an easy and delicious recipe. All you need is:

1 vanilla pod
250ml milk
250ml cream
1 tsp lavender blossoms
3 eggs
2 egg yolks
140 g sugar

1.  preheat the oven to 150 °C, then mix milk and cream into a cooking pot and add the lavender

2.  cut the vanilla pod into half and scratch out the vanilla seeds with a knife, add the peel and seeds to the milk-cream mix and bring to boil. Then remove the peel and let it cool down for a moment.

3.  Mix the eggs together with the sugar and add the milk-cream mix carefully.

4.  Fill a big bowl or a deep oven tray with water and place 4 or 6 small oven proof bowls inside the water bath. Fill the forms with the liquid crème brûlée and bake for 45 minutes.

5.  When ready, take out the bowls and add a thin layer of sugar on top of your crème brûlée. If your oven has a grill function, put them under the grill for couple of seconds to caramelize the sugar on top, otherwise use a chef's torch.
