Help! Baking time conversion for Creme brulee recipe

I am making this creme brulee recipe tomorrow and I was wondering what the conversion would be if I wanted to make it in a 8" circular dish instead of individual ramekins?

Thank you!

  1. i don't recommend this. the middle won't be cooked before the edges are overdone.

      Would lowering the temperature help to cook it more evenly, do you think? I don't have ramekins.

        it's already cooked at a pretty low temp. there is a reason these are cooked in smaller vessels, vs. big pans. you don't have any kind of small, oven-safe glass bowls? you could even do this in muffin tins and reduce the cooking time.

          Could I use a cupcake pan instead of a muffin tin? With cupcake liners? Or I guess I could get muffin tins instead. Hrm...

            You need something that can stand up by itself and can handle the final "brulee".

              I just found this recipe from Nigella- - that I think I'll make instead but add in the lemon peel from the Epicurious recipe and strain it out of the custard before pouring into the pan. Its a no-bake recipe and she makes it in a bigger dish. Yay!

              Oh, also I found this from the What's Cooking America in case someone else is looking for a baked brulee made in one dish-

              Thanks so much for your help, hotoynoodle and cutipie721!

                btw, you can dust about anything firm with sugar and torch it. even cheesecake. that nigella recipe is like how you make pudding.

              lol, in my house cupcake tins and muffin tins are the same thing. :)

                I was thinking that, but hadn't gotten down here to say so.....
