Who knew Crème Brûlée could be so simple?
Crème brûlée is a French dessert that literally means “burnt cream,” it’s a custard with a caramelized shell coating the top. The contrasting layers make it one of my favorite recipes. It’s generally served in individual dishes called “ramekins. It really doesn’t get much better than this! I used coconut milk for this recipe which makes it vegan! And NO it doesn’t taste like coconut!! It’s creamy, elegant, refreshing and the crispy caramelized crust on top is divine. It is one of my absolute favorite desserts!
