Fall for London Fog

The colder weather is here, and the fall scents are out in full swing. What are we loving? London Fog of course! Who doesn’t love the sweet, soothing aroma of vanilla paired with Earl Grey tea? A London Fog, for those who don’t know or need a refresher, is a distinctly Canadian treat—a steamed milk latte made from steeped Earl Grey tea with a hint of vanilla. It’s perfect for chilly days after a long walk through crisp air and crunchy leaves.

Here at Rocky we are huge fans of the drink, and that’s why we’ve brought back our London Fog Community Bar for the month of November. This sweater-weather soap is made with calming Bergamot Oil, anti-inflammatory Black Pepper Oil, and, of course, antioxidant-rich Vanillin (vanilla).

To celebrate, we’re sharing this super tasty recipe for London Fog crême brûlée. It’s a comforting twist on a classic French dessert, and we promise it’s much easier than whipping up a batch of soap bars. Seriously though, this is the crème brûlée of your dreams and will give you that brilliant Earl Grey, London Fog taste you crave (without being too much)

The first step when making any recipe (after you throw on your favourite tunes, of course) is clean hands! So get started by washing up with our naturally antibacterial Kitchen Hand Wash and let the invigorating scent of eucalyptus and rosemary energize your baking.

Creme brûlée preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 325F.
  2. Steep Earl Grey tea in 1 cup hot water for 6-8 minutes.
  3. Bring cream and tea mixture to a boil.
  4. Remove from heat and let sit for 30 minutes, then strain and press the tea bags for maximum flavour.
  5. In a large mixing bowl stir together egg, egg yolks, and honey or sugar until the consistency is smooth.
  6. Add vanilla bean seeds and stir.
  7. Transfer mixture into 6-8 small ramekins. Place the ramekins into a roasting pan, and fill the roasting pan with hot water until the level reaches half-way up the sides of the ramequins. This will keep the mixture from overcooking while in the oven.
  8. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until the crème brûlée is set.
  9. Remove the ramekins and let cool on counter, then in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  10. Sprinkle one half to one teaspoon of sugar on each crème brûlée, and melt the sugar using a torch. If you do not have a torch, you can always stick the ramekins in the oven on broil, in a bain-marie with ice cold water so the mixture doesn’t continue baking and only the top broils.
  11. Serve to your guests and enjoy the warm, rich aroma of something that’s so comforting this time of year.
