2. Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until light and creamy. Remove the lavender flowers from the cream. Slowly pour the cream into the egg and sugar mixture, blending well.
3. Divide mixture between two ramekins or custard cups. Place them in a pan and carefully fill the pan with warm water, until it reaches halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake custards until set around the edges, but still loose in the center, about 40 to 50 minutes. Remove form oven and leave in the water bath until cooled. Remove cups from water bath and chill for at least two hours, or up to two days.
4. When ready to serve, sprinkle one teaspoon of sugar over each custard. Melt the sugar until golden brown with a small hand-held torch or place under the broiler.
