Very Vanilla Chai Cheesecake Brulee
I love Brulee anything to be honest. I happen to own a fantastic flame thrower blow torch that could set my kitchen on fire...luckily I have a fire extinguisher too. It was purchased at Bunnings and is industrial strength. I hate to admit it, but those dinky little kitchen torches they sell in kitchen stores are just not up to my brulee demands!
This is like cheesecake on overdrive. It is fabulous. We LOVED it, and actually as I am off my sweets lately (due to endeavouring to behave myself in time for summer) I found this one hard to resist. Seriously. Do yourself a flavour. (But try and save it for a special occasion...food positivity and all that jazz!)
