How to Make No-Bake Creme Brulee
For this creme brulee recipe, I add a home-made orange blueberry jam into the bottom of each custard cup. It’s easy to make and you can use fresh or frozen berries. This way, you’ll get a bit of berry goodness with every bite! And then for the orange flavor, I add orange zest right into the custard mixture. It’s a great way to add a light hint of flavor that carries throughout the dessert. The combination of the blueberries and zesty orange is mind-blowing!
Allow this no-bake creme brulee to set in the refrigerator for a few hours, or make it the day before and let it set overnight. Add the sugar and caramelize the topping a few minutes before serving. This way, the sugar will stay hard and crystallized. Plus, a blow-torch show in the kitchen will impress your guests!
This recipe will also work well with agar gelatin, a plant-based gelatin that is a great alternative to conventional gelatin. Simply add the agar gelatin to the custard while it’s cooking. Reduce the amount from 1 tablespoon to 1 1/2 teaspoons.
Lemon Juice Tip!
Have you tried adding a bit of freshly-squeezed lemon juice to your creme brulee? You’ll thank me once you do! That little bit of lemon juice really transforms this dessert and adds that little bit of needed acidity. I recommend squeezing a little bit of fresh lemon over the dessert right before enjoying!
