Young Cook Finalist Recipe

  • Frances Noonan
  • Assumption Grammar, Ballynahinch
  • Key stage 4


  • 300ml Northern Ireland double cream
  • 100ml Northern Ireland semi–skimmed milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 15g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1.5 tbsp Demerara sugar
  • 75g mixed berries


  • Preheat the oven to 150ºC.
  • Pour the cream and milk into a saucepan and heat until almost boiling.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside for 10 minutes.
  • In a heatproof bowl, whisk the egg yolks and caster sugar together with a balloon whisk until combined.
  • Stir in the cream mixture and Baileys and pour into 6 small ramekins.
  • Put the ramekins in a roasting tin and add enough cold water to the tin to come two thirds of the way up the sides of the ramekins.
  • Carefully put the roasting tin in the oven and cook for 30–40 minutes, or until just set.
  • Remove from the tin and leave to cool, then chill. Preheat the grill to hot.
  • Sprinkle the Demerara sugar in an even layer over the brûlée and heat with a blow torch (or under a grill for 2 min) until the sugar has melted.
  • Leave to cool until the sugar has set, then serve straight away.
