  • Put your oven to preheat mode at a temperature of 150°C.
  • Add cream into a bowl or saucepan and warm it gently. Make sure it doesn't boil, and then remove it from heat. Carefully divide the vanilla pods down the middle and open the sides. Add them to the warm cream and let them infuse for half an hour while eventually discarding the pods.
  • Split the blueberries between 6x150 ml ramekins and put aside. Beat the egg yolks, sugar and beat the matcha together in a pot until it gets thicker and creamy. Put in the cream while shaking it smoothly to mix it well.
  • Keep ramekins in a standing position within a roasting tin and add in warm water until it reaches halfway on top of sides. Put the custard combination into the ramekins and then blueberries will swim to the top level.
  • Start baking in the oven for approximately 40 mins or until you can see it has set. Finally, remove from tin and let it cool before chilling for at least three hours, or overnight for the most flavour.
  • Splash the remaining sugar equally on top of each tin. Also, melt the sugar in a way that it takes an even creamy shape.


If you don’t have a blowtorch, place right under a broiler on the top rack for 1-3 minutes with the oven door open. You want the sugar to caramelise, but you don’t want the eggs to cook.
