We tend to swap imperial with metric around like a ball. 4 ounces with 1 litre as an example. I am pretty careful about the discrepencies.

As you know there is a difference in cooking and baking. Substitutions can be made in cooking. Baking is a science and if a recipe calls for heavy cream, then heavy cream it should be. Gentle heat in a Bain Marie and heavy cream. This is one time where cost should not be the rule of the day. Heavy cream costs only a few cents more. Good luck and let us know how you make out.

For the Japanese version of creme brulee. They use a variety of dairy. I've used milk, half and half, heavy cream, and baileys. It will change the consistency from being like jello to a very creamy creme brulee. Try to strain your mixture through a cheesecloth or very fine sieve so you remove some gritty particles.

Make sure you are not cooking the egg too much before the water bath. Once I cooked it on the stovetop too long before pouring it into ramekins and it curdled when I took it out of the oven
