Coffee Caramel Creme Brulee

Coffee Caramel Creme Brulee
Creme Brulee is one of my half dozen go to desserts (and my second favorite all time dessert next to Tiramisu). There’s a reason it’s on my short go to list. Besides being spoon licking good, It’s EASY. Yes it may sound all fancy schmancy (despite it’s literal translation of burnt cream) but it doesn’t require any special equipment. You of course CAN use a blow torch which is fun and all but you honestly don’t have to have one. You can use your broiler in a pinch.

Other highlights, it can be made well in advance (in my opinion it’s better when it’s made the night before and you won’t be rushing because time got away from you while you were chasing a rabbit down a Pinterest hole. What? Only me. Okay.) and last but not least you can flavor it until the cows come home. Today’s flavor comes to us via our Homemade Coffee Caramel Sauce. A few tablespoons mixed into the warm cream and oh sweet creamy mamma is this one a winner winner.

So grab a whisk and a few Davidson’s Safest Choice Pasteurized Eggs (this way you can taste the goodness as you go with no worries) and whip up a batch of these oh la la beauties this week.

NOTE: Our recipe makes  enough for 6-8 depending on what size ramekins you use (and well because we just can’t help ourselves when it comes to creme brulee) it can easily be halved if you’re looking for a smaller scale. I mean if you’re into that, or you could just invite me over.

    I love crème brulee. I am a woman of a certain age—and thus should be wiser. However I gave myself a tummy ache, when I was in Victoria BC at the Bengal Room having Indian buffet and the dessert was crème brulee instead of the standard Indian rice pudding. Crème brulee at a buffet—-unheard of. I took advantage of that a wee bit too much. Pretty much that was all I ate. I love this version with your special sauce.

    First, let me just say, your photos are beautiful! Second, crème brulee does have a fancy ring to it. Kind of sounds intimidating but I’m sure with the little amount of ingredients, it had to be easy to make. This is def on my to-do list.

    Anything that begins with coffee and I’m in! This sounds purely heavenly!
