Low Carb Creme Brulee Recipe

This is an easy recipe with few ingredients but brings lots of oooohs & aaaaahs. Super creamy and very satisfying.
  1. 2 cups Whipping Cream
  2. 4 Egg Yolks
  3. 2 Tbsp liquid Splenda or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp liquid Stevia
  4. 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  5. Dash of Salt
Heat whipping cream in a saucepan over medium heat, just until bubbles start to form.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

In a bowl, whisk together ingredients 2 through 5.

Gradually add heated whipping cream to the combined ingredients in bowl, whisking continually.

Strain mixture and divide into 4 custard cups.

Bake in a water bath for 40 to 45 minutes at 325 degrees. Custards should be set, but still jiggly in the center. You can add a dash of cinnamon to the top of each custard then chill in refrigerator for 2 - 3 hours.
