Coconut Crème Brûlée




Introduction: Coconut Crème Brûlée

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Hey Foodies, today I am making Coconut Creme Brûlée. Coconut is something that I am always drawn to and knowing that you can make a brûlée out of it elevates both the creme brûlée and the coconut in this recipe. The coconut flavor is not over powering and the cream brûlée has a nice burnt sugar top and the custard is so smooth and satisfying. If you love custards and coconut, this recipe is perfect! I also forgot to mention that this recipe is so easy to make with a handful of ingredients. So if you want to make your own Coconut Crème Brûlée, then follow the step by step guide below or watch the video tutorial here:

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools


  • ½ Cup Sugar (plus extra for the top)
  • 6 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened canned Coconut Milk
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Extract


Step 2: Prepare Oven and Ramekins

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place six ramekins in large roasting pan.

Step 3: Whisk Sugar and Eggs

Whisk 1/2 cup sugar, egg yolks and whole egg in large bowl to blend.

Step 4: Simmer Milk

To a sauce pan add in coconut milk and heavy cream. Bring milks to a simmer.

Step 5: Add Egg Mixture

Take off heat and quickly whisk yolk mixture into the milks. Add coconut extract and stir.

Step 6: Run Through Sieve

Pour mixture through a sieve.

Step 7: Bake and Chill

Pour custard into cups, dividing equally.

Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of cups.

Bake until custards are just set in center, about 35 minutes.

Remove from water.

Cool and then chill overnight.

Step 8: Top With Sugar

The next day, sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar evenly over each.

Step 9: Broil

Before serving broil with a kitchen torch or broil for 2 minutes under broil setting in oven.

    I wonder how they would turn out if I replaced some of the cream with a little more coconut milk and added vanilla extract instead of coconut extract. Hmmmm, could I replace the cream with the coconut milk? Thank you for the inspiration! I will let you know if it works.

    I don't know how it would work with the coconut milk. I never tried to replace it. I kind of dont think it would work out too well but you could always try it if you're willing to possibly have an oops batch lol.

    Nice! Challenge accepted! I'm going to try to make this kept and use Swerve instead of sugar. I'll let you know how it turns out. Never burned Swerve before.

    This made me realize I've never made creme brulee from scratch. I think once with a kit, I think? Would love to try yours!
