Coconut Creme Brulee Recipe



Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a saucepan, combine the cream and lowfat milk and bring to a boil.
In a small bowl, combine egg yolks, sugar, and coconut rum.
When the lowfat milk mix has come to a boil, remove from heat.
Stir a small amount of the lowfat milk mix (2-3 Tbsp.
) into the Large eggs yolks, whisking vigorously.
Slowly add in the remaining egg yolks back into the warm lowfat milk mix, whisking continuously.
Pour into individual Corning ware or possibly Pyrex serving dishes or possibly custard c.
. Place on a deep baking sheet filled with warm water in center rack of oven.
Bake 15-20 min or possibly till center is nearly set.
Remove from oven to a heat-proof surface.
Sprinkle heavily with a layer of coarsely granulated sugar.
Using a small torch, apply heat directly to surface of custard till a browned sugar layer forms.
(Note: this step may also be performed directly under the flames of a gas broiler, but the results may not be so dramatic).
