Instant Pot Green Tea Creme Brulee Recipe Experiment
We tested this creme brulee recipe with both the pressure cooker and the oven. As with the pressure cooker, we tried it with both low pressure and high pressure.
Yes, we ate all 8 green tea coconut creme brulees ourselves within 2 days. It’s not that we didn’t want to share, but we needed a taste test. 😉
Green Tea Creme Brulee Pressure Cooker vs Oven Results:
The tastes from all 3 methods were spot on. The differences were the textures and the caramel on top.
The pressure cooker creme brulees were really smooth, and the ones made with low pressure totally wins with the melt-in-your-mouth cream-like texture.
The main issue with the pressure cooker creme brulees is the top layer of sugar. It had a hard time caramelizing because the sugar absorbed a lot of moisture from the creme custard and became soggy.
So, the sugar turned out to be chewy once burnt. If you like to eat cream-like texture creme brulee skipping the hard caramel top, try making it with low pressure. The melt-in-your-mouth texture is just divine.
Green Tea Creme Brulee Recipe Experiment Conclusion:
As a conclusion for our little experiment, here are our order of preferences:
Oven Creme Brulee
Low Pressure Instant Pot Creme Brulee
High Pressure Instant Pot Creme Brulee
We tasted some creme brulees right away when it’s still warm, tasted some after chilling for 4 hours, and tried the rest the next day. They all tasted better after refrigerating overnight.
