Quick, No-bake & Easy Crème Brulee Recipe

Crème Brulee, a classic French dessert is basically a smooth & creamy custard with a golden crust of caramalised sugar on top. Though the classic recipe calls for an oven, one can use a steamer too. Here is a quick, no-bake & easy Crème Brulee recipe.


4 egg yolks
200ml thickened cream
100ml milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract


Separate egg yolks and egg whites carefully.

Stir caster sugar into egg yolks. Add thickened cream, milk and vanilla extract and combine well. Beat gently.

Pass the mixture through a fine sieve to remove any lumps.

Divide mixture into three ramekin bowls. place the bowls on a steamer filled with boiling water & steam for approx 10-15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, turn off the heat. Let the custard sit in the steamer for another 10 minutes. Remove from the steamer and let cool completely before chilling in the fridge.

For the caramalised crust, remove the ramakin bowls from the fridge & Sprinkle a thin layer of sugar over the top of the custard, and shake the dish to distribute it evenly. Heat a ladle carefully over the gas burner (hold it with a kitchen glove as it may get hot) & place it on the sugary layer. Even out the layer by heating the ladle again & placing on undone parts. Now sit back & dig into that amazing creme brulee you  just made...a-la restaurant syle.
