comment What can I use for a Crème brûlée if I don't have a blow torch?
I've used this method and it works wonderfully. It appeared in a cordon blue[sp?] book. Follow your oven's instructions, but usually you should keep your oven door partially open during broil/grill operation, since it works using IR radiation and not diffusion, this will also prevent the creme from starting to cook (if you don't use the cold bath), and work only on the sugar layer.
