Creme Brulee... errors

frankiii | Nov 19, 2007 02:52 PM

So, I was asked to cook for some family friends the day after Thanksgiving. My aunt pretty much demanded Crème Brulee; I don't make many deserts. So, to be safe, i decided to give them a run tonight. In short i read a recipe backwards and used whole eggs when i should have used egg yolks and egg yolks when i should have used whole eggs. So, it seemed soupy to me but it was not until my dyslexic brain untangled itself that i saw what I had done. They are in the oven now but, I am wondering if I should expect anything but goo. The recipe called for 4 egg yolk, one whole egg, 1/4 cups of sugar and 1 and 1/2 cups of cream. Any pros out there that might make a suggestion? Lower the heat and prolong the bake? Throw it out now? Brace for greatness?
