Creme Brûlée : The LCHF / Low Carb Way !

This recipe suggestion is from Julia McPhee.
It's a simple LCHF / Low carb Crème Brûlée and is so easy to create. No culinary skill required!! Crème Brûlée is one of Julia's all time favourite desserts, and this Simple LCHF/Low carb Crème Brûlée Recipe allows her to create and enjoy her own Brûlée ... you may also like to give it a try!


3 Egg yolks
1 cup cream (full cream)
1 tbsp. Vanilla essence
1 tbsp. Natvia (or sweetener of choice)

1. Heat oven to 160 C.
2. Beat egg yolks, Natvia and vanilla essence until well beaten (I placed them all in a blender and mixed for several seconds). Heat cream in a heavy based saucepan. Stir regularly and do not allow to boil. When cream is hot (but not boiling), add slowly/gradually to the egg mixture, stirring constantly.
3. Pour mixture into 4 ramekins/ or small coffee cups. Place ramekins in a baking dish and pour boiling water into the dish (around ramekins) until the water is around half way up the ramekins. Place in oven and bake for 30 mins (they should be firm to touch and slightly browned on top). When cool, place in the fridge.

4. Note that I have not made a traditional Crème Brûlée topping. I like to keep my recipes simple and easily achievable. This is a great tasting, and simple to make, Low Carb Crème Brûlée recipe.

Creme Broulee (burnt cream) is a classic, very loved dessert. People refer to it as A Tale of 3 Countries because of the debate about its origin (France, England, Spain) ha,ha, ha.
Anyway your low-carb version is certainly worth a try!

It sounds and no doubt tastes good.

God bless.

Hello Dewena, many thanks for your comment and question.
I haven't made a LDHF flan (quiche) but I have made a LCHF flan, which I think you probably meant to type …

There are many recipes available some with a low carb crust, and others that are crustless, here are suggestions for both types, and they are very tasty.

French Low Carb Quiche, which has a low carb crust
more details here

Ham and Cheese Quiche with Sun-dried Tomatoes, which has a low carb crust
more details here

Crustless Asparagus Quiche
more details here

Bacon and mushroom breakfast crustless quiche
more details here

Hope this helps … happy cooking :)

All the best Jan

I love creme brûlée, and this smaller recipe size sounds perfect. I've never tried the sweetener that you mentioned, but I could use another. Thank you for the recipe.
