  • Add the hot cream bit by bit, whisking continuously
  • Put the mixture through a fine strainer
  • Place 4 ramekins in a hot water bath and fill them evenly with the cream
  • Bake for about 35 minutes, until the edges of the custard are set, with a spot in the center about the size of a quarter remaining wiggly (baking time depends upon the height of the ramekins: if shallow, start checking at 30 minutes)
  • Remove ramekins from the hot water bath and cool to room temperature on a rack

  • Just before serving, uncover the ramekins and soak up any condensation with paper toweling
