first ever attempt at creme brulee is currently in the oven. No clue when to get it out, recipe says 45-80 mins confused and I have no idea how "set" it needs to be. help??!

How were they? I don't bake mine, but make a custard and leave it to set.

I normally manage this by making creme patissiere to go on the meringue instead of nasssssty whipped cream for a sort of pavlova. The problem with this strategy is that it usually ends up with using more yolks than I had, so I end up with left over whites, then need to make more meringues, so need more creme pat etc.
