Calories 570kcal


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons erythritol (I used Sukrin)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 vanilla beans (I used Sukrin)
  • 3 tablespoons erythritol (I used Sukrin)


  • Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C).
  • Place 6 baking dishes in a large roasting pan.
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine cream and 3 tbsp of erythritol.
  • Split vanilla bean lengthwise.
  • Scrape its seeds into the saucepan, then add the pod.
  • Heat gently on medium temperature just until the mixture starts to bubble a little (around 7 minutes).
  • In the meantime, whisk the egg yolks with remaining erythritol and salt.
  • Use a large mixing bowl and an electric mixer.
  • Mix until the mixture gets pale yellow.
  • Start adding the hot cream mixture into the yolk mixture.
  • It might be best to use ladle.
  • You want to prevent the eggs from curdling, that’s why you need add only a small amount of cream at first, and whisk to combine.
  • Next, add two ladles of cream mixture, one at a time, and whisk after each addition.
  • Continue in the same manner, until you mix in all the remaining cream mixture.
  • Strain through a fine sieve into a large cup.
  • You want to get rid of the vanilla pod and any bits of cooked egg, but try to force the vanilla seeds through the sieve.
  • Pour custard into baking dishes.
  • Place the roasting pan in the oven.
  • Pour enough boiling water in the pan to come halfway up the sides of the dishes.
  • Bake until custards are set (around 35 minutes).
  • When shaken, they should tremble slightly in the middle.
  • Don’t let them get too firm.
  • Remove dishes from hot water and let them cool on a wired rack for up to 30 minutes.
  • Then, cover them with a foil and place them in the fridge for at least 2 hours (overnight is best).
  • Use a blow torch to caramelise it.
  • Erythritol will not caramelise as well as sugar, but it will do the job well enough to offer a similarly crispy experience.
  • If you don’t own a torch, you can use a broiler, but watch really closely for when the topping is melted.
  • Enjoy every bit of it!
