Coconut Caramel Creme Brulee
Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 3 hours | Serving Size: 4 servings
1 can (13.5 oz) full-fat coconut milk
1/2 cup Earths Basket Coconut Sugar, divided
1/2 cup plant-based milk (such as almond milk or oat milk)
1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Additional Earths Basket Coconut Sugar for caramelizing the tops
Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).
In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk, half of the Earths Basket Coconut Sugar (1/4 cup), plant-based milk, cornstarch or arrowroot powder, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt. Whisk until smooth and well combined.
Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook the mixture, stirring constantly, until it thickens and comes to a gentle boil. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
Once the mixture has thickened, remove it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
Pour the mixture into individual ramekins or oven-safe dishes. Place the ramekins in a baking dish and fill the dish with enough hot water to reach about halfway up the sides of the ramekins. This creates a water bath for even cooking.
Carefully transfer the baking dish to the preheated oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the custard is set around the edges but still slightly jiggly in the center.
Remove the baking dish from the oven and let the custards cool to room temperature in the water bath.
Once cooled, transfer the custards to the refrigerator and let them chill for at least 2 hours, or until completely chilled and set.
Just before serving, sprinkle a thin, even layer of Earths Basket Coconut Sugar on top of each custard. Use a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar until it forms a golden and crispy crust. If you don't have a kitchen torch, you can place the custards under a broiler for a few minutes until the sugar melts and caramelizes.
Allow the caramelized sugar to cool and harden slightly before serving. This will create the classic "crack" when tapping the surface with a spoon.
