Eggless Crème Brûlée

Goes by few other names – burnt cream, Trinity cream, crema catalana – this little desert comes with a top layer of hardened caramelized sugar. Break through the top and dive into the rich vanilla flavored custard base; throw some strawberries as well in there! As always, this recipe is EGGLESS and can easily be made VEGAN with a few tweaks!
Another easy no bake recipe : Peanut Butter Bon Bons

This does not include the time for cooling


  • 3/4 cup – Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup – Corn starch
  • Pinch of salt
  • A pinch of turmeric (mainly for color; optional)
  • 400 ml – Full fat milk (or coconut milk)
  • 4 tsp -Vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp – Lemon squeeze
  • 1/4 cup – Butter (or choice of vegan butter)


  • Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt and turmeric into a saucepan. Keep the heat off.

  • Add milk, vanilla extract and lemon juice and start stirring with a whisk

  • On low heat, keep stirring bring the mix to a boil. Keep stirring constantly till you reach a thick consistency (Check video at the bottom). Never stop stirring!
  • Add in the butter and keep stirring till its melted
  • Pour the mix into 4 ramekins
  • Let it cool. Refrigerate so they can cool down all the way
  • After about 1 hour, sprinkle a layer of cane sugar on top.
  • Next, we have to caramelize the sugar. You can use a blow torch but if you don’t own one like me, use the broil mode in the oven.
  • Once the oven is heated up on broil mode, keep the ramekins on a rack close to the coil.
  • Keep an eye on them for the next few minutes. Remove the ramekins once the sugar has caramelized.
  • Let them sit for 10 to 15 minutes or until a solid crust is formed on top
  • Serve with fruits on top. Strawberries go really great with them!
