Put the ramekins in a heatproof dish, and fill the dish with water so that it comes half way up the ramekins. Lift up the ramekins and then place them back in the dish.

Place in the oven for 30 minutes, or until set. Then cool in the refrigerator.

Once the brles have cooled, scatter a layer of caster sugar on top. Use a blow torch to caramelise the sugar, and let it form a hard shell over the top.
