This is a wonderful take on the familiar french dessert. This espresso crème brûlée is made with a strong espresso shot and gives a delicious coffee taste!
You can also try to make it with other types of coffee. They will each give a slightly different flavor. Personally my suggestion is to use what you usually drink and since I’m a coffee addict I like my coffee very strong!
There are only five ingredients in this recipe so it’s easy quite easy to make but it does require you to be careful with the technique otherwise the custard might turn to sweet scrambled eggs…. If you follow the directions below you should get a lovely creamy custard. see the picture!
Some tips for success:
- You need a good burner. It is possible to caramelize the sugar in the oven under the grill but you control the process much better with a burner.
- All of the ingredients you’re using should be in room temperature
- When you’re adding the warm cream to the eggs do it very carefully. little by little and stir it well each time you add it. after the temperature of the eggs has risen enough you can add the rest of the cream with no fear!
