6. Pour the liquid into creme brulée ramekins. Place the ramekins in a roasting or baking pan. Add water to the pan till it reaches the crème brulee level.

7. Bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes. After removing it from the oven let it sit for 30 minutes and then refrigerate for some time until it is fully set.

8. Before serving, dust the tops with raw sugar and burn the sugar going slowly from spot to spot with a torch.
