If you thought crème brûlée was a mystical treat only to be enjoyed at fine dining spots, we’re right there with ya. But turns out all you need is a kitchen blowtorch, and the rest is easy as pie! Or easier, really.

Preparation time Prep: 10 mins
set 2 hours
Skill level Easy Peasy

You will need:

  • 1 cup almond or soy milk
  • 4 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 3 ¼ tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1To make the vanilla custard, add all ingredients, except the 2 extra teaspoons of caster sugar, to a blender and blend well. Make sure the milk is cold, which will ensure the mixture doesn't become lumpy.
  • 2Pour into a cold pan and turn on medium-high heat. Stir for 5 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • 3Spoon the creme into two ramekins and smooth them out to make flat surfaces. Let cool and set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • 4Remove from fridge and add 1 teaspoon of caster sugar on top of each ramekin.
  • 5Carefully use a kitchen blowtorch on the sugary tops until they caramelise.
  • 6Let them cool so the caramel topping firms up. Serve with your choice of dairy free ice cream or fresh berries!
