Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs. fresh strawberries hulled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup demarara or raw sugar

For the Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract OR orange liqueur

Instructions

  • Add the cream to a medium-sized bowl. Using a handheld or stand mixer begin mixing on low speed. 
  • When the cream begins to form peaks, sift in the powdered sugar. Add the vanilla extract or the orange liqueur. 
  • If using the cream right away, continue to beat until stiff peaks form. If making the whipped cream in advance, whip until soft peaks form and then re-whip with a whisk before using. 
  • Gently fold in the strawberries.
  • Divide strawberry and cream mixture among 6 - 4 oz. ramekins.
  • Sprinkle generously with demerara or raw sugar, making sure to heavily cover some areas of the top.
  • Using a torch, brulee the sugar until it melts and caramelizes. The cream will melt but don't worry - it's supposed to.
  • Refrigerate ramekins for a few minutes until the sugar hardens. Serve immediately.
