  • sweetener (additional
  • whipped cream


  • Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place rack to the middle position.
  • Heat water in a tea kettle until hot, not boiling.
  • Find a pan large enough to fit the 4 ramekins and deep enough to add water half way up the sides of the ramekins.
  • Method: Add the yolks and 1 tbsp of the granulated sweetener to a medium bowl.
  • Beat well to completely break up the yolks.
  • Pour the heavy cream into a small pot and add the remaining granulated sweetener, espresso, and stevia glycerite.
  • Place the pot over medium heat and heat, stirring occasionally with a whisk, until bubbles begin to simmer around the edge of the pot.
  • Turn off the heat and begin pouring the egg yolk into the hot cream mixture - very slowly in a thin stream, while quickly whisking all the while.
  • Whisk in the brandy.
  • Bake: Divide the coffee creme brulee mixture evenly between 4 ramekins.
  • Place the ramekins into the pan and fill the pan with hot water half way up the sides of the ramekins.
  • Carefully place the pan into the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the very center of the creme brulee is barely jiggly - about the size of a nickle or a dime.
  • *See recipe notes in post.
  • Cool the sugar free coffee creme brulee in the water bath for an hour before removing to a rack to cool completely.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours but overnight is better.
  • Melt the sweetener with a culinary torch until it caramelizes, turning brown.
  • Alternately, add a dollop of whipped cream to the top and some cinnamon.
  • Serve.
  • Recipe Notes [NOTE] This is in the post, but not everyone reads the posts...
  • *Use any sweetener you want Sukrin, Swerve, Lakanto, or your favorite.
  • To torch the top, Lakanto worked best with Swerve at second.
  • You don't have to torch the top.
  • Simply adding a dollop of whipped cream was very nice, too.
