Eggless Vanilla Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee is a French dessert which consist of a rich custard base topped with contrasting layer of hard caramel. Hard Caramel can be made by sprinkling sugar on top of the Custard  and using a blow torch the sugar is caramelized. Creme Brulee can be made in different  flavors such as Vanilla , Lavender , Chocolate , Cinnamon , Coffee , Hazelnut and Coconut . 

Creme Brulee was chosen for this month's challenge on Baking Eggless Group . Vimala Lakshmi of Cooking Club Suggested this recipe . Normally the members of Eggless Group have to replace eggs with some ingredient. This time we , the members have to replace eggs on custard .So i chose Corn flour instead of eggs. Brulee turned out to be perfect and Creamy .The Crust on top was the other task. Without a blow torch it was quite difficult to get a Hard Caramel. 

It took soo long for the sugar on top of the Custard to get caramelized. The sides got caramelized so quickly. So i have to find a different way to caramelize the sugar  , when i make brulee the next time .

Ingredients : 

Fresh Cream - 1 Cup
Milk - 1/2  Cup
Condense milk - 1/2 Cup
Vanilla Paste - 1 TSP
Corn Flour - 3 TBLS

Sugar - To Caramelize on Top


  •  Mix Corn flour with milk and keep aside.
  • In a pan , heat the Fresh cream , condense milk and vanilla paste in a medium flame.
  • Bring the fresh cream mixture to boil. Keep stirring the mixture. 
  • When it comes to boil , add the Milk-Corn flour mixture and keep stirring  . Keep the flame in low.
  • In couple of minutes , the custard mixture will thicken . ( The consistency should be thicker than the white sauce ).
  • When it reaches dropping consistency .Take off the heat . Strain the Custard to make sure there is no lumps. 
  • Pout it in Ramekins or Baking dish.
  • Preheat the oven at 200C.
  • Fill a deep pan with 1/3rd of hot steaming water.
  • Place the Ramekins in it .Bake it for 30 Minutes or till it sets hard.
  • Once it is done allow it to cool . Cover it with a cling wrap and refrigerate it overnight .
  •  Before serving , Sprinkle the sugar over the set custard and broil it , till the sugar gets Caramelized.
