  2. To make Crème Brûlée: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add heavy cream, vanilla, and maple extract. Heat until bubbles start to form around edge of pan, 3–5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, egg yolks, and maple syrup. While continuously mixing, slowly pour hot cream mix into egg mixture. Whisk to combine, then pour through a mesh sieve to remove any egg solids.
  4. Place six ramekins in a large baking dish and fill dish with room-temperature water up to nearly the top of ramekins. Pour equal amounts of filling into each ramekin. Carefully slide into oven. Bake 40 minutes or until custard sets with a slight wiggle.
