371 Montauk H'Way , Water Mill, NY 11976 Stati Uniti d'America


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yokes
  • 2 medium baking apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 325. Melt 2 butter and add prepared apples, sauté until light golden.
  2. Combine oats, milk and cinnamon stick in a saucepan, and bring to boil. Once mixture comes to boil reduce heat to low and continue to cook for 4 minutes, stir occasionally. Add the sauteed apples cover pit and let sit.
  3. Place the cream, 1/2 cup of sugar, vanilla bean and its pulp into a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Remove the vanilla bean. In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks then add the cream a little at a time, stirring continually. Stir in the remainder of the cream mixture and the apple oatmeal. Discard the cinnamon stick.
  4. Divide the oatmeal-custard mixture among the 6 ramekins. Place the ramekins into a large roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake just until the crème brûlée is set, approximately 45- 50 minutes.
  5. Before serving divide the remaining 1/2 cup vanilla sugar equally among the 6 dishes and spread evenly on top. Using a torch, melt the sugar and form a crispy top. Allow the crème brûlée to sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.
