White Chocolate Crème Brûlée

I’ve made this dreamy White Chocolate Crème Brûlée once before and despite getting a crème brûlée facial in the process (when removing one of the custards from the water bath), it was definitely worth repeating. While we had a stash in the fridge, Bill was quick to let me know how fabulous it tasted. I must agree, it’s super creamy and utterly delicious!

Tips for Making Crème Brûlée

Since classic creme brulee is one of Bill’s favorite desserts, I’ve made it dozens and dozens of times. Here are some tips I’ve learned along the way:

  • Slowly drizzle the hot cream into the egg mixture while whisking constantly. Start with just a few drops at a time. If you go too fast the eggs will curdle. Then when you strain the mixture, all the egg that should be giving the creme brulee its structure will be tossed out in the form of scrambled eggs (been there, done that)!
  • Baking times will differ depending on the type of ramekins you use. The deeper round versions (4 oz. Porcelain Ramekins) will take longer than the flat, oblong dishes ( Creme Brûlee Ramekin Set).
  • Bake in a bain marie or water bath. This allows the custard to bake at a consistent temperature, ensuring you have a silky, creamy result.
  • I use a deep dish pizza pan or my roaster for my bain marie. The handles on the roaster are handy for moving the water-filled pan in and out of the oven more easily.
  • I use sugar in the raw or Turbinado Sugar to make the burnt sugar topping. Brown sugar would work too, but I’d suggest leaving it out to dry for a few hours before sprinkling it over the custard.
  • You can use your broiler to melt the sugar, just make sure to watch it carefully so the sugar doesn’t burn. You want it melted and lightly browned.
  • I like using a Culinary Torch to brulee the sugar. You have much more control compared to the broiler.
  • Save your leftover egg whites to make a pavlova, meringue cookies and macaroons!

Gluten Free Recipes in Memory of our Sunday Supper Friend, TR Crumbley

Our friend, and fellow blogger, TR passed away earlier this year after a valiant battle against duodenal cancer. He was such a kind, intelligent, easy going soul. His life was cut short way too early, and he is truly missed throughout the food blogisphere. TR was a treasured member of the Sunday Supper family.

I was lucky enough to have met him at the Food and Wine Conference both times I attended. His blog featured all gluten free recipes, so in honor of our friendship, I’m sharing a gluten free recipe today.

  112. MARY H HIRSCH says:

    No, just, No, Liz. There are 4 of “that” and one of me. Man, that Crème Brûlée looks delicious. What I must compliment you on profusely are the well-thought-out tips/hints/instructions that you often add to your posts. I always read them carefully and adopt many of them to my everyday cooking. I am not well-trained nor an expert in the kitchen nor did I ever take HomeEc in school (do they still offer that?) so I just am still learning the basics as I move along. Keep at it, please, and I’ll keep at it, promise.

  113. I could eat this everyday!
