How to Make Creme Brulee!

There’s nothing quite like the French, mother of all desserts, crème brûlée!

Two completely different textures playing off of one another makes this recipe unique. The base of the dessert is a rich custard usually made of egg yolks, sugar and vanilla. It’s topped with a thick layer of burnt caramelized sugar which hardens when it cools and makes a very satisfying crack when broken with a spoon. In fact, the name crème brûlée translates to burnt cream in French! It’s no wonder people go crazy over it- it’s delicious!

Many people wonder how to make creme brulee at home or if it’s even possible to achieve the same dessert when going sugar-free. Fortunately for us low-carbers, erythritol actually caramelizes quite well! When you apply high heat to it, it will brown and definitely harden upon cooling. We’ve tried this several times (check out our Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Crème Brûlée!) with great success.
