No need for additional equipment to make our recipe for strawberry crème brûlée. Simply top the baked custard with sliced strawberries and a glaze of caramelized sugar. Plan ahead for this dessert as the custard needs to chill before serving.
Preheat oven to 160c/gas mark 3
To serve, slice strawberries and arrange 2 on each custard (this can be done ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve). Just before serving, heat remaining 45g cup sugar in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, tilting pan to melt evenly as sugar liquefies. Once sugar is melted, reduce heat to low and cook until very liquidy and golden-brown. Quickly drizzle 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar mixture over strawberries on top of custards. Serve immediately.
