Oh, how sweet and delicious! Creme Brulee (or how it’s spelled in French: Crème brûlée) is a delicacy of French cuisine that is simple to make and is considerably low-carb and keto friendly! If you don’t mind a few grams of carbs from the sugar top (the carb count can really be lowered with the correct heavy cream), this will satisfy all your sweet tooth cravings!
Is this Low-Carb or Keto friendly?
Yes! It’s pretty much a fat bomb!
Why use real sugar for the brulee?
The hard top (i.e. the ‘brulee’ of the creme brulee) is extremely difficult to do with low-carb sweeteners. I’ve tried them all (erythitrol, allulose, golden erythitrol, stevia, etc, etc) and only one got slightly hardened – most just became a goopy mess that tasted terrible and was not pleasant to eat. After making my kitchen smell like burnt cat hair after trying over and over again with the different sweeteners, I settled on accepting the fact that as of this time, there is no replacement for real sugar for the brulee. If you can stomach the few grams of carbs, I highly recommend it.
