Ingredients

  • 2-1/2

    cups heavy cream

  • 2/3

    cup superfine sugar

  • 2

    lemons, grated zest of 1 and the juice of both

  • 3

    tablespoons confectioner's sugar, to finish

Directions

1. Pour the cream into a saucepan, add the sugar, and heat gently, stirring continuously, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Bring to a boil and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. 2. Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the lemon zest, then gradually mix in the juice. Pour the lemon cream into 6 ramekins and leave to cool, then chill in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours until set. 3. About 25 minutes before serving, sprinkle the tops of the desserts with the confectioner's sugar. Caramelize with a blowtorch then leave at room temperature. TIP: Heavy cream will not curdle even if it is boiled, providing that it is stirred and cooked for no more than 2-3 minutes. Light cream on the other hand can only be brought to just below boiling point or it will start to curdle.
