Crock Pot Creme Brulee

Crock Pot Creme Brulee created by Izy Hossack

It sounds strange, but the constant low heat is a terrific way to cook this dish. It's a nice and low stress way to cook this classic French food. Enjoy!

Ready In:
2hrs 15mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream (whipping) or 2 cups 18% coffee creamer
  • 12 teaspoon real vanilla, good-quality (scrape the seeds out of the pod, you can also use vanilla bean paste)
  • sugar, for sprinkling on top

directions

  • In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar. Whisk in the cream and vanilla.
  • Divide among 4-6 small ramekins, or 1 large one, and put it/them in your CrockPot. Pour hot water around them so that it comes about halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours, or until set but still slightly jiggly in the middle. Take them out and let cool. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight, until nice and cold.
  • Sprinkle an even layer of sugar over each dish and caramelize with a torch or transfer to a cookie sheet and place under the broiler in the oven for about 2 minutes, just until the sugar is caramelized and golden. Turn the sheet around if you need to to help them caremelize evenly. Refrigerate again, or just let them sit on the countertop while you eat dinner or make coffee, just until the sugar is set and crackly.

    The simplest creme brulee you could ask for! My filling slightly curdled so next time I would try cooking on a lower heat in the slow cooker which would hopefully prevent this. Loved that you didn't have to cook the custard on the stove though so will definitely be trying this again :)
