I just arrived in Minnesota, but I have to admit that I’m already missing California. I was really enjoying the ocean, running in the sunshine, and the warmth. Last week I ventured down to the pier to snap some photos before the sun set. It still felt like summer with my toes in the warm sand and the salty ocean breeze on my face.
Even though California is beautiful, I have to admit that there is nothing better than Fall in Minnesota. I can actually enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate filled with jumbo marshmallows. I can go apple picking and make the best apple crisp. Oh and what about soups?! I plan on eating spicy chili for a whole week! Plus who could forget about Fall fashion? I plan on shopping for cute hats. scarves, mittens, and boots.
But do you know what the best thing about Fall is? THE absolute best? Dessert! You know the ones that are served with a cup of hot coffee and good conversation.
Like Creme Brulee! But not just any Creme Brulee; this baby is made with light coconut milk so it has a slight coconut flavor. It’s pretty heavenly and actually lower in calories than your typically creme brulee.
Now you’re probably thinking that this seems like the type of dessert you would serve in a fancy restaurant, and appears pretty complicated. BUT here’s the thing: it’s incredibly easy actually WITH or WITHOUT a kitchen torch!
Let me explain.
Creme Brulee is basically a cream and egg yolk based dessert (custard) with a caramelized sugar topping. They are usually served in ramekins and baked in a water bain to keep moisture in the oven while also prevent the custard from overcooking. Once done baking, the custard need to be refrigerated before serving. Once they are ready to serve, simply sprinkle the tops of the custards with sugar, place ramekins back in the oven and turn on your broiler. Broil for a few minutes, watching VERY carefully so that you don’t burn the dessert.
How easy is that? Warm and chilly fall evenings are about to get delicious.
Know what’s even better? A good kitchen torch that makes this process so much more fun. Plus, it’s great for toasted marshmallows and using on meringues!
Sooooooo…. I’m giving away a Bonjour Gourmet Creme Brulee 5 Piece Set!
