Good Luck and treat yourself!
4 oz. (115g) raspberries
2/3 cup of superfine sugar
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 3/4 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup ground hazelnuts
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Divide the raspberries between 4 ramekins. Sprinkle each with 3/4 tsp of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of lemon zest.
Whisk the cream with the eggs, hazelnuts, vanilla extract, and 1 tbsp of the sugar until well blended. Pour over the raspberries. Stand the dishes in a large frying pan with enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the dishes. Cover the pan with a lid or foil and cook very gently for about 30 minutes or until set. Don't let the water boil or the custard will curdle. Leave to cool, then chill in the fridge.
Remove from the fridge, sprinkle liberally with the remaining sugar and broil under high heat for 3-4 minutes until caramelized. Alternatively, move a cook's blowtorch over the top to caramelize the sugar. Allow to stand for 5 minutes, then serve.
