Create A Crème Brûlée Without An Oven or A Torch

Creme Brulee is a popular and easy French dessert made from milk, sugar and eggs, and has a pudding like consistency. Traditionally, creme brulee is made with an oven and a blow torch. However, many people don't have either one of these things in their kitchen.
