Low Fat Crème Brulee

Low Fat Crème Brulee

How to recreate a no cheat treat favourite dessert at home. Super simple to make and using Arla B.O.B milk it’s just as creamy and delicious but without the added calories.


Step 1
  • Start by splitting the vanilla pod lengthways with a knife and scrape out all the seeds from inside the pod.
Step 2
  • Add the seeds and the pod to a pan with the milk and bring to the boil. Then simmer for another 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and set aside.
Step 3
  • In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and caster, then add the hot milk and mix well.
Step 4
  • Take out the vanilla pod (you can clean it and let it completey dry to use again!)
Step 5
  • Preheat the oven to 140°C and add equal quantities of the mixture into the ramekins or bowls
Step 6
  • Place the filled ramekins into a roasting oven tray and then add enough boiling water to the tin or dish to reach 3/4 of the height of the ramekins.
Step 7
  • Pop the oven tray in the oven and bake for roughly 30 minutes until the mixture has just set.
Step 8
  • Once set remove from the oven and allow them to cool down fully. When cold, add to the fridge to chill for at least 1 hour (you can also freeze them at this stage if you are batch cooking or making them for a later date). Preheat the grill to very hot.
Step 9
  • Sprinkle the demerara sugar over the top of each bowl, and caramelise under the hot grill for 2–3 minutes, or you could use a blow torch if you have one.
Step 10
  • Leave to cool and set the layer of crisp caramel. When set, place the ramekins on serving plates and enjoy!
