Light Cream in Brulle style

Light cream in Brûlée style

This Creme is crazy easy and requires just ricotta, light sour cream, vanilla, eggs and sugar. Served in Creme Brûlée style  but with much less calories. Just follow the 4 simple steps:

  1. Simmer sour cream and ricotta with vanilla, set aside to infuse for a while;
  2. Whisk egg yolks and add to cream and ricotta
  3. Pour into ramekins, fill dish with hot water, bake 35 – 40 minutes, cool then refrigerate
  4. Sprinkle with sugar then blast with blow torch or stick it under a stinking hot grill.

Let’s talk about that caramel topping for a sec. Don’t fret if you don’t have a blow torch! If you have a blow torch, it takes around 10 seconds to caramelize the surface evenly.

However, if you don’t have a blow torch, just melt the sugar under a stinking hot grill for 45 seconds – 1 minute. It works just fine, though follow the two tip:

  • the creme should be refrigerated overnight to ensure it is really cold
  • after the sugar is melted, pop it back in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, up to 1 hour. This is because the grill takes longer than a blow torch so the surface of the custard under the caramel will melt a little bit.
