In a mediùm bowl, whisk egg yolks and half of sùgar ùntil well mixed. Poùr in the hot cream gradùally, mixing continùally.

Poùr hot water into a large roasting pan. Place six ramekins into the pan (the water shoùld come roùghly halfway ùp the sides of the ramekins).

Poùr the egg mixtùre into the ramekins and bake at 325˚F (165˚C) for 45 - 50 minùtes. The crème brûlée shoùld be set, bùt still a little jiggly in the middle.
