Green Tea Crème Brûlée 抹茶クレームブリュレ

Green Tea Crème Brûlée | Easy Japanese Recipes at JustOneCookbook.com

Before I talk about this delicious Green Tea Crème Brûlée recipe, I have one happy news to share with you.  My recipes are being featured in the March issue of Singapore’s Food & Travel magazine!

Food&Travel Singapore | JustOneCookbook.com

Thank you Food & Travel for the feature!  By the way, if you are curious about these featured dishes, the recipes are already on the blog: Omurice, Spaghetti Meat Sauce, Ebi Fry, Hamburger Steak, Kuri Kinton.

Now let’s move on to today’s recipe.

It was almost two years ago when I first learned about Green Tea Crème Brûlée on my friend Sissi’s site.  My husband is really into crème brûlée and I’m into matcha (green tea)… so I knew I had to make this dessert for us one day.  But who knew it took me 2 years to make it…

The main reason why it took me a long time is because I thought crème brûlée is difficult to make despite being told it’s easy (and it is SUPER easy!).  My husband even bought me a crème brûlée kit a while back (wait, was it a sign?).  The kit came with four ramekins and a kitchen blowtorch.  He was more excited to use the blowtorch than me and he actually used it in Seared Tuna Sashimi (Aburi Toro) recipe.

So what triggered me to make crème brûlée this time?

I just had more than enough egg yolks from making Easy Coconut Macaroons (recipe coming soon!).

I researched a little bit about crème brûlée as I wanted a good crème brûlée before adding matcha (green tea).  I found most recipes online are pretty similar as the ingredients list is pretty short.  I adapted Ina Garten’s crème brûlée recipe as the base and made my matcha version.

This recipe is very simple yet really delicious!  Hope you won’t end up waiting for 2 years like me to make this dessert!

Green Tea Crème Brûlée Recipe
 
Prep time
Cook time
 
Serves: Serves 6
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 1 Tbps. green tea powder (matcha)
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • ½ cup granulated sugar, plus 1 tsp. for each serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Place the cream, milk, and matcha into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Scald the mixture, stirring often, until it’s very hot to the touch but not boiled. Remove from the heat and let it cool. In the meantime, start a kettle of water on the stove.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together ½ cup sugar and the egg yolks, until well blended and the mixture becomes pale yellow.
  4. Temper the egg and sugar mixture with the milk and cream, adding ½ cup at a time, whisking vigorously. You don't want to cook the egg by pouring the milk and cream too fast.
  5. Place a sieve over a large bowl and strain the mixture through the sieve.
  6. Divide the liquid between 6 medium ramekins. Place the ramekins into a large deep baking or roasting pan.
  7. Carefully pour boiling water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  8. Bake just until the crème brulee is set when shaken, but still trembling in the center, approximately 30-40 minutes. Remove the ramekins from the water bath, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days. If you are storing them for more than 12 hours, cover tightly with plastic wrap.
  9. Remove the crème brulee from the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to browning the sugar on top.
  10. To serve, spread about 1 tsp. of sugar on the top of each ramekin. Tap the side of ramekin to evenly spread the sugar and discard the excess sugar.
  11. Melt the sugar with a kitchen blowtorch until the sugar caramelizes evenly.* Allow the crème brulee to sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.
Notes
If you don’t have a blowtorch, place right under a broiler on the top rack for 1-3 minutes with the oven door open. You want the sugar to caramelize, but you don’t want the eggs to cook. I've never tried this method but I've read it's not as easy as it sounds... hope this will work for you. With the kitchen blowtorch, each one has varying degree of heat so make sure it's at least 1½ to 2 inches from creme when you start melting the sugar. Adapted from Food Network.

    Congratulations on the matcha creme brulee. I’m glad you can confirm how easy it actually IS. The hardest part for me is the bruleeing as I have to use the broiler and it’s been hit and miss lately. :) I was happy to see that you also used a half cream-half milk custard version. It tastes just as creamy and is a bit healthier.

    egg yolk left over is definitely a good source for an inspiration huh? What a lovely creation you made. I would love to have a bowl of this. I love creme brulees too and of course who doesn’t love green tea? In fact green tea latte is my fave hot drink lately, and I would imagine that the flavors are similar.
    Congratulations for being featured. You are definitely a media star!

    I love creme brulee but I don’t have a blow torch and I am notorious for cooking eggs when they are not supposed to be cooked. I will have to get a blow torch now because green tea deserts are my fav and I can’t wait to try this one.

    Dear Nami, it’s better late than never! Crème brûlée is such an easy and impressive dessert, especially the matcha version! I told you it was easy. Thank you so much for the kind mention and link. I see that your recipe also uses half milk, half cream, just like mine. It’s so much better than 100% cream (and so guilt-free!). Your cream looks fabulous and the photos are so gorgeous, I’d better make some new ones soon ;-)

It’s actually our favorite dessert and pretty much the only dessert we order when we eat out. Bobby keeps wanting me to make it at home, but, like you, I thought it was too hard. He said he has a blowtorch and he would LOVE to do the torching, :) so I guess I better get to cooking. I love the Green tea brulee and always have matcha, so I’m ready! Thanks for the inspiration Darlin! Have a great weekend!

    Crème Brûlée is one of the favorite desserts in our family. Usually I make vanilla and chocolate ones, and never Green Tea. Sounds very intriguing -) Green tea is excellent flavor in sweets. I can see you use it a lot. Love the color, of course, spring is definitely here!

    Hello Nami,

    Wanted to share with you — today this recipe has been tried and tested on my husband, his parents and sister. It was a huge hit!… I’ll be directing my sister-in-law to your blog when I handed her her very own can of matcha.

    Thank you again for sharing the recipe.

      Hi Lily! I’m so happy to hear you all liked this recipe! And it’s so sweet of you to give her a can of matcha. :) I’d recommend green tea ice cream too! So easy and so authentic flavor… that’s my favorite matcha dessert. :)

      Thank you so much for introducing my site to your sister-in-law!

    Made this yesterday and it was absolutely delicious! Love the addition of matcha! I torched one of the extra ones this morning for breakfast, perfect way to start the day. My husband isn’t the biggest fan of sweets, but he loves any excuse to use the blowtorch.
