In this tutorial, we’ll learn all there is to know about vegan crème brûlée, a delicacy that manages to strike a perfect balance between decadence and moral discretion.

Vegan Crème Brûlée
Picture a rich custard that has been caressed by the vanilla bean and topped with a layer of crisp caramelized sugar. Creme brûlée, which is typically prepared with eggs and cream, has been transformed into a vegan masterpiece that retains all the deliciousness of the original without using any animal ingredients. Flavor, texture, and kindness are all honored here.
How to Make a Vegan Crème Brûlée (and Enjoy It Too!)
Vegan Creme Brulee:
Prep Time: Begin by preheating your oven to 325°F (163°C).
- Coconut cream is the decadently smooth foundation upon which this dessert rests.
- Soaked and pureed cashews offer a velvety texture and nutty flavor.
- To add just the right amount of sweetness (try some agave syrup.)
- Natural and effective (arrowroot powder is a thickening agent.)
- Vanilla extract (for that unforgettable taste.)
- Custard’s classic yellow hue comes from a pinch of turmeric.
- Cane sugar is the caramel’s main attraction.
- For decoration and a flash of brightness (try some fresh berries.)
- Blend the soaked cashews with the coconut cream, agave syrup, arrowroot powder, vanilla essence, and a pinch of turmeric for a traditional color, and you have a custard base. Mix until it’s silky and smooth.
- Magic with Ramekins: Distribute the custard mixture among the ramekins. Cover the bottom of a baking dish with water and set the ramekins inside. Cooking will be gentle and uniform using this water bath.
- Preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, place the baking dish inside, and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. The ideal custard consistency has a small jiggle when shaken.
- When the ramekins are done baking, take them out of the water bath and allow them to cool. The next step is to place them in the refrigerator for at least two hours to cool and harden.
- Just before serving, sprinkle a little, uniform coating of cane sugar over the top of each ramekin containing custard for a caramelization sensation. Now comes the exciting part: using a cooking torch, caramelize the sugar until it turns brown and crunchy.
- To finish off your vegan crème brûlée, sprinkle on some fresh berries. The splash of color and taste is the finishing touch.
