  6. Preheat the oven to 150?C (gas no 2)
  7. Pour the double cream into a saucepan over a medium heat
  8. As it reaches the boil, carefully and slowly pour it onto the egg yolk mixture, whisking the mixture as you do to make a thin custard
  9. Leave for a few minutes to cool slightly before gently pouring the custard over the fruit in the ramekins, again dividing the custard evenly amongst them
  10. Place the ramekins in a roasting tin with high sides
  11. Carefully pour boiling water into the tray until it reaches half way up the ramekins
  12. Carefully place the roasting tin in the preheated oven and cook the creme brulees for about 35 minutes, or until just set

  14. Once cool, place the ramekins in the fridge until required
  15. When you are ready to serve, bring the brulees out of the fridge and sprinkle the Demarara sugar evenly across the top of each custard
