Sous Vide Crème Brûlée – Izzy Cooking (Video)

Crème Brûlée is one of those incredibly decadent desserts that people think of for a special occasion. Today I will share this recipe with you from Izzy over at Izzy Cooking that teaches us how to make this deliciousness at home using the Sous Vide method. You can learn more about Izzy here. From what I can gather, many of the recipes focus on Sous Vide, air fryer and Starbucks copycat drinks – yum!! I can tell you that this recipe’s only “flaw”, is that it’s so easy to put together, you’ll have to be careful not to make it too often, as it is so creamy and delicious, you may not want to share.

What is Sous Vide again??

Sous Vide is a method of cooking foods in a water bath at a precisely controlled (lower) temperature for an extended period time. The results speak for themselves. You won’t ever worry about overcooking an expensive cut of meat, it will come out perfectly tender and juicy, based on the temperature YOU select, every single time. So far, I notice also that using the sous vide method leaves me time to do other things, as it’s a matter of placing your food in a reusable or zip top bag and into the water, pressing START and it does its thing.

Here is a helpful video using our Deluxe Multi Cooker that explains how to Sous Vide:

Let’s jump right in!

Ingredients

Custard

  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar about 1 ½ teaspoons for each crème brûlée
  • fresh berries and mint (optional, but very pretty)

Instructions

Fill the inner pot of the Deluxe Multi Cooker with water 1″ below the ½ fill line. Lock the lid and select SOUS VIDE. Set the temperature to 179° F and the timer for 2 hours; press and hold START.

Separate 5 egg yolks. Combine egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar, whisk well.

Mix in 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste, and 2 cups heavy cream. Mix well.

Strain the mixture. Pour mixture into prep bowls or zip top bags.

When you hear beeps and ADD is displayed on the DMC, open the lid and submerge the bags and/or bowls.

Lock the lid and press START. It will display the word “RUN”. So, I call this my Run DMC, lol!!!

When the timer is up, press CANCEL. Carefully remove the bags/bowls. Pour custard into prep bowls once cooled. Chill for 4 hours-overnight.

Add 1.5 teaspoons of sugar (I used raw sugar) to each bowl of custard. Use a kitchen torch to brown sugar, or broil for 1-3 minutes. 

Decorate with fresh berries and mint, if desired.

That’s it! Oh my GOODNESS. This is my absolute FAVORITE dessert! So creamy, so decadent, so, so, so AMAZING. Please let me know if you give this a try, and do go and visit Izzy over at Izzy Cooking, and tell her I said hello!!
