Creme Brulee

Crème Brûlée, what a heavenly indulging treat that is light yet so satisfying. Easy enough to satisfy your weeknight cravings, yet fancy enough to impress your guests!

The divinely silky smooth cream paired with the crisp caramel shell that cracks perfectly with a spoon is simply an irresistible taste of heaven.

Instant Pot Creme Brulee Experiment

We tested our beloved Oven Creme Brulee Recipe using Low Pressure & High Pressure, then compared the differences. Each method resulted in a different Creme Brulee texture.

  • Oven Method: thick, creamy, custard-like
  • Low Pressure Method: light, silky smooth, melt-in-your-mouth cream
  • High Pressure Method: smooth, pudding-like (slightly more firm than the other two)

Conclusion

We instantly fell in love with the Low-Pressure Method’s heavenly smooth & divine tasting cream!! Oh~ this is too good to be true…

Separate Eggs

Separate egg whites from egg yolks in two mixing bowls.

how to separate egg whites from egg yolks

Use a large mixing bowl for egg yolks and a small mixing bowl for egg whites. Place egg whites in a refrigerator for other dishes.

Step 2

Warm Cream Mixture

In a medium saucepan, add in 2 cups (500ml) heavy cream, 1¼ teaspoon (6.25ml) vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.

warm heavy cream mixture in saucepan

Warm the mixture up to 70°C – 80°C (158°F – 176°F) over medium heat. Stir occasionally. Turn off the heat and set aside.

Step 3

Make Creme Brulee Mixture

Add 6 tablespoons (75g) granulated sugar to the large mixing bowl with 6 – 7 egg yolks. Mix well with a whisk or spatula.

mix granulated sugar and egg yolks

Temper the sugary egg yolks by pouring a small amount of the warmed cream mixture into the large mixing bowl. Mix well. Pour and mix in the remaining cream mixture.

*Pro Tip: If you want smoother creme brulee, pour the creme brulee mixture through a mesh strainer (as shown in below photo).

Step 4

Pressure Cook Creme Brulee in Instant Pot

Pour the cream mixture into 6 6oz ramekins. Fill them to 85% full. Remove air bubbles on the surface with a torch or spoon.

Close the lid and pressure cook at:

  • Pressure Cooking Method: Low Pressure for 13 minutes, then 15 minutes Natural Release.

*Pro Tip: For small pyrex glass bowl, it will be Low Pressure for 16 minutes, then 15 minutes Natural Release.

After natural releasing for 15 minutes, turn Venting Knob to Venting Position to release the remaining pressure. Open the lid carefully.

Step 5

Chill Creme Brulee

Different ramekins may require different cooking times due to factors such as the type of material, size, and thickness.

So, be sure to take out one of the ramekins and check for doneness.

*Pro Tip: The very center of custard should jiggle. If the whole custard is jiggling, wrap & place the ramekin back in the Instant Pot and pressure cook them for another 3 minutes.

Place ramekins on a cooling rack. Once they have cooled down, chill in a refrigerator for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).

Step 6

Caramelize Sugar Top

When ready to serve, spread ¾ teaspoon granulated sugar evenly on top of the cream custard in ramekin.

Use a torch to caramelize the sugar to form a crispy top.
