Easy vanilla creme brulee

As a gift my fiancee got me a creme brulee kit containing a blow torch and ramequins, and i couldn’t wait to use it and since i lost my recipe i used in college , i looked online and found a no bake recipe which was quite strange to me as i always baked mine in a hot water bath called the ” BAIN MARIE” technique . This version worked so well and only took minutes to realise the dish and the taste were amazing .Off course when i finished the creme brulee i finally found my old recipes that i learned in one of my restaurant during college , it is an orange creme brulee recipe that i will share with you soon but this time i will post the no bake vanilla version.
