Method

  1. Using a whisk or electric beater, beat the mascarpone and vanilla until smooth. Add ½ of the custard and fold through with a spatula until incorporated, then fold through the remaining custard. 
  2. Place the raspberries into the base of 4-6 ramekins, then spoon the custard mixture over the top. Tap lightly on your bench to flatten the custard surface, then place into the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour. 
  3. Once chilled, remove from the fridge and sprinkle the caster sugar in a thin, even layer over the creme brulees. Using a blowtorch, gently torch the sugar until golden and caramelised. 
  4. Serve immediately once torched, or keep covered in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
