Coffee Amaretto Crème Brulee

creme brulee 3

Usually, when you eat creme brulee, it doesn’t necessarily have a flavor to it besides the sweetened cream it’s made with and the hardened sugar shell. For this recipe, I decided to add some flare and incorporate coffee and amaretto. Those two added ingredients make for a superb taste that take this ordinary creme and transport it out of this world.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cook Time: 50 Minutes

Wait Time: 3 Hours

Serves 5


6 egg yolks

1 large egg

½ cup sugar

1 Tablespoon ground Turkish powder

2 cups heavy cream

¼ cup amaretto

1 teaspoon vanilla paste


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • In a large saucepan, combine the cream, ground coffee, amaretto and vanilla. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar and coffee are dissolved
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the sugar, yolks and egg until blended
  • Gradually stir in the crème mixture while whisking
  • In a large roasting pan, add your ramekins
  • Equally place the crème into the ramekins
  • Fill the pan with hot water until it comes halfway up the ramekins
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until the center barely moves when slightly shaken
  • Once ready, let cool down a bit and refrigerate until completely cooled off
  • after it has been cooled, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar over each crème and using a torch, broil until sugar is brown and caramelized, rotating so there is an even caramelization
  • Serve and enjoy
