This recipe is super easy--a rich and delicious twist to an old favorite. Cook the sugar top using a kitchen torch or just place under your broiler.

  • Whisk egg yolks and 1 tablespoon sugar together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Whisk in eggnog, cream, and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.

  • Pour eggnog mixture into 4 ramekins. Place ramekins in baking dish; pour in enough boiling water to come half way up the sides of ramekins.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 1 hour. Cool slightly, cover ramekins with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 4 hours.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Remove plastic wrap from ramekins. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar in a thin layer over top of each ramekin. Brown the sugar using a kitchen torch or under a broiler until golden and caramelized, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Cook's Note:

Browning sugar to finish the creme brulee can be done with a kitchen torch instead of using a broiler, if desired.

This is very creamy with a slight egg nog flavor. I prefer to use a torch to caramelize the sugar. Everyone enjoyed it. Read More
