Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine sugar and water in sauce pan.
Over medium high heat, bring mixture to a boil, and continue to boil until caramel colored, being careful not to let it burn. Using wet pastry brush, brush sides of pan so that crystals don’t form during this process.

Scald over medium heat and cool.
Whip egg yolks until lemon colored. Stir into cooled cream.

Place in shallow baking pan filled with hot water halfway up sides of ramekins.
Bake for 30 minutes or until centers are set.
Cool and refrigerate until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, run a knife around edge of custard. Set dishes in warm water for about 1 minute. Invert onto individual serving plates.
