I love eggnog and Crème Brûlée, so it was time to marry these two flavors together! This is a quick and simple recipe to whip up, though like all Crème Brûlée recipes, you will need some patience when it comes to baking and setting the custard. This dessert is fun for kids and adults alike with its hard sugar topping that you get to crack!
What is unique about this recipe is the inclusion of goat milk cream, in place of the traditional cow heavy cream. Normal heavy whipping cream can be heavy on the stomach. This goat milk cream version is lighter and easier to digest, and typically works well for those with cow milk sensitivities. This recipe is for a single Crème Brûlée, but the amount of goat milk cream you will hydrate is enough for 2, so you can double it if you want. I like to get creative with my Crème Brûlée and will often try multiple flavor varieties at the same time. If that is what you want to do, check out our Pumpkin Crème Brûlée or our Espresso version in this blog post. Espresso is my favorite and tastes like coffee ice cream.
One quick note, the texture of the goat milk cream variety is always a bit different than cow when I make it, but I have yet to try the water bath method of cooking Crème Brûlée. You might want to try that to see if it enhances the texture.
Enjoy and please leave a comment below if you try it!
