Sous Vide Crème Brûlée That Will Not Fail

I never thought that it would be possible to make sous vide crème brûlée. But it works so well, and there seems to be no risk of the mixture curdling.

Head straight on to the Recipe For Sous Vide Crème Brûlée ♥

Midway through last year, the gym we belong to decided to move premises. The landlord of their current site was not very accommodating when it came to maintenance. And the owners of a newer shopping centre had space to fill. The gym was meant to move in September when we were overseas. However, when we got back from Italy the date kept on being pushed further and further. Until on the weekend of the 15th of December they had no choice but to move. Dave and I trained a few times between then and the end of the year, in a gym that still needed a lot of work. For one, the air-conditioning was not working, and in summer that is not pleasant. The vents also had not been opened to allow fresh air into the gym, making it quite stifling.

On New Years Eve I was having a conversation with someone who told me the gym was finished. As mentioned that there was still so much to do, especially in the bathrooms and the studio. She was adamant that everything was complete and I did not have the strength to argue with her. I knew for a fact that the builders had not been back on site, but being correct was not going to convince her otherwise. Her know-it-all attitude just got under my skin that night, making for a not so pleasant evening. I am trying to get to “know it all” when it comes to my sous vide and I do a lot of experimenting. I am so pleased with how these sous vide crème brûlée turned out that I have made more than one batch of them. This is now my go to dessert recipe.

  6. I still haven’t tried sous vide cooking–need to one of these days. This is a perfect application. I don’t have problems with curdling, but sometimes I get those little bubbles on the surface which hurt the texture. Great idea!
