You absolutely will feel like you are dining in an elegant restaurant. This fancy dessert will knock your socks off. It takes minimal effort to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to chill so you can enjoy properly! You’re going to want to make this one. I knew the minute I saw this recipe, it was happening. Who doesn’t like custard? How about a fully Keto custard? Yeah, that’s correct, this recipe is 100% Keto.
- 6 large egg yoks (discard the whites)
- 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
- 5 tbs Keto approved sweetener (I prefer this one I buy off Amazon –> https://amzn.to/33zSgNa ) or pick up at Costco
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
You will also need some 4 oz. ramekins or oven safe bowls. I picked up a set of 6 ramekins on Amazon that were on sale –>https://amzn.to/3npsIug
Start a pot of water on the stove top. You will need towards the end. Fill it about halfway.
In a sauce pan, start with your 2 cups of heavy cream and only 1 tbs of the sweetener. Bring this to a boil and immediately remove.
While your cream is coming to a boil, separate your 6 egg yolks and put into a bowl. Add your 4 other tbs of sweetener and vanilla and whisk until combined.
When your cream has come to a boil and you removed, take 1/2 cup of the cream and dump into your egg yolk mixture. Whisk it until combined then dump this mixture into your hot cream mix.
Place your ramekins into an oven safe pan deep enough to hold water. Fill each one of them evenly with the mixture. As I stated before, I used 4oz ramekins so this made 6. If you have larger, then you will make less. Continue until all are full. Keep them in the oven safe pan. Add 2 or 3 cups of water so it comes up the ramekin about 1/2″ to an inch. This apparently helps the custard cook evenly. Place into the oven at 325 for 30 to 35 minutes until the Brulee is set-up but still a tad jiggly. Let cool on the counter for about 15 minutes then place in the fridge to chill.
Now for the fun part. After they have chilled, sprinkle 1 tsp of Keto sweetener (powdered or granular) on top and hit it with a cooking torch. If you don’t have one, use your oven broiler but watch it closely so it doesn’t burn. Now enjoy!
Can you eat it warm? Sure, but I think it’s best cold. You be the judge, but whatever you do, go make this one! You probably have everything!!!
