Coconut Creme Brulee

12 egg yolks?  No problem - I made coconut creme brulee.  I found the following recipe on and used all 12 egg yolks instead of just 10.  No issues at all - turned out beautifully.  Please note - do not mix too fast or you will get foam.  That is bad.

  1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk                                        1 Tsp Coconut Rum
  1 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream                                                       1 Tsp Vanilla
  10 Large Egg Yolks                                                              1/2 Tsp Salt
  1 Cup Sugar                                                                         1/4 Cup Coconut

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Slowly heat cream and coconut milk in a medium pot until it just begins to bubble.

Whisk together the yolks and sugar until eggs turn a light yellow and the mixture thickens. Whisk in the vanilla, rum, and salt.  Slowly add the hot cream mixture while continuously whisking. Stir in the sweetened coconut.
Pour mixture evenly into 6 6-ounce ramekins (custard dishes). Place ramekins in a baking dish and add enough hot water to come about half way up the sides of the ramekins.

Bake for approximately 35 to 40 minutes until custard is almost set. The custard will be mostly firm but still jiggle slightly in the center when tapped.

Remove from water bath and let cool slightly. Place in refrigerator and chill overnight.

Just before serving sprinkle 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar over each custard. Caramelize the sugar with a handheld propane or butane torch.
