This creme brulee is an elegant low-carb dessert made with only 5 ingredients and is also keto, gluten-free, and sugar-free diet friendly. Smooth custard underneath crunchy caramelized top, makes a dreamy dessert, ready in 40 minutes with just 5 ingredients.
- 6 egg yolks
- 5 tbsp Swerve
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tsp Swerve to top the dessert
Preheat oven to 325 F. Prepare 4 ramekins and a pan large enough to fit all 4 of them.
Place heavy cream and 1 tbsp of the sweetener in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat.
In a bowl, combine egg yolks and 4 tbsp sweetener. Add vanilla. Whisk until the sweetener has been incorporated.
Add 1/2 cup of the hot cream to the egg yolk mixture and whisk to combine. Pour the mixture back to the pot with heavy cream. Whisk to combine.
Divide mixture between 4 ramekins. Place ramekins in the baking dish. Pour about 2-3 cups hot water inside the baking dish so it covers about 1-inch of the ramekins.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the tops are set, but still wiggly.
Remove form the oven and let the creme brûlée cool to room temperature.
Cover each ramekin and refrigerate.
Sprinkle 1 tsp of sweetener on top of each brûlée and using a kitchen torch melt until it caramelizes.
