Crème Brûlée is known for its rich, creamy taste with an intense vanilla note. It is an absolute classic and enjoys great popularity. The special thing about the dessert is the crispy caramel layer on the top. The blood orange in combination with the Kotányi Vanilla bean provides a fine extra.

    Pour in the mixture and bake for 40 minutes at 130°C on the middle rack. Remove from the oven, let cool and refrigerate overnight.
