Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée

    I was skeptical of making a lower calorie creme brulee, but this turned out amazing! I doubled the amount of sugar and added a little more vanilla bean. It came out as a sweet custard with perfect texture. It also took a little longer to cook, and I used just granulated sugar and a kitchen torch to get my hard sugar topping. Will definitely make again!!

    I made this for our couples book club using Blue Diamond Almond/Coconut milk and powdered goats milk as one of our friends is Dairy intolerant. This recipe worked really well and so if you are needing to modify, it was a hit with everyone. I used the same quantities and times.

    This is a great recipe. I ended up doubling the cooking time but that may be a problem with my oven rather than the recipe. This is a great basic creme brûlée recipe. You could easily top the brûlées with a little fruit for a nice presentation.
