Ingredients: (click on the ingredients for buying recommendations)
4 egg yolks
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered erythritol or Swerve brown sugar substitute
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
2 tsp granulated erythritol (for topping) or Swerve brown sugar substitute
Raspberries (optional, for serving)
- Preheat the oven to 325°F or 162°C
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, powdered erythritol, salt, and vanilla extract.
- Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over low heat until it just begins to simmer.
- Slowly pour the hot cream into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from curdling.
- Pour the mixture into four 6-ounce ramekins.
- Place the ramekins in a baking dish and add hot water to the dish, making sure the water comes halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the custard is set but still slightly jiggly in the center. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature.
- Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until completely chilled.
- When ready to serve, sprinkle a thin layer of granulated erythritol over the surface of each custard and use a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar. If you don't have a torch, you can place them under your broiler for a few minutes until the sugar melts and caramelizes.
- Serve with raspberries, if desired.
