Heat up milk, cream and vanilla till its warm to the touch.

Once it's warm, pour half of the cream + milk mixture into the yolks while constantly stirring.

Then pour it back into the pot with the remaining milk and bring it to a rolling boil.

Once it's done, pour it back into the bowl and continue whisking for another 2-3 minutes, by hand. You don't wanna leave it in the pot as it might cook the eggs even more.

Pour into your prepared ramekin and place them into a pan with high sides. We're going to bake this in a water bath so fill the pan half way with water. Then bake it for 17-22 minutes.

To know that they're baked, they would be custard like but still wobbly in the centre. It sets as it cools. Once they're baked, chill them for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.

When you're ready to serve them, put a thin layer of sugar (I always use brown sugar) and brûlée it!

I used a torch which is ideal, but since many people wouldn't have one, you could put it under your broiler till the sugar has melted and a crust has formed.

Sorry for the horrible quality pictures. I was making this in a real rush, but I still wanted to make a guide. So, yeah......

When you break through the crust and drag your spoon down against the ramekin, the only feeling you feel is serenity & joy. And when the spoon enters your mouth, I need a paper and a pencil for that.
