KETO SALTED CARAMEL CRÈME BRÛLÉE
I have a feeling that you will also love this Keto Salted-Caramel Creme Brulee! I love the juxtaposition of textures — the cold velvety custard contrasting the warm caramel topping. Like everyone else who is addicted to this dessert, the best part is the moment of breaking into the caramel shell.
WHERE DID CRÈME BRÛLÉE ORIGINATE?
It’s hard to say where this delicious dessert originated. France, England, and Spain all claim to be the source of origin for Crème Brûlée. If we think in terms of ‘evidence’ validating its origin, we might side with the French. The first printed recipe for this burst cream dessert appeared in the 1691 edition of the French cookbook Le Cuisinier Royal et Bourgeois by Francois Massialot, a cook at the Palace of Versailles.
WHAT IS CRÈME BRÛLÉE?
This Keto Salted-Caramel Creme Brulee is a rendition of the classic Crème brûlée, also known as burned cream, burnt cream, or Trinity cream. It is similar to Crema Catalana, is a dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a layer of hardened caramelized sugar.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT WAYS CRÈME BRÛLÉE IS MADE?
Is there a certain way to prepare Keto Low-Carb Salted-Caramel Creme Brulee? There is a great deal of hoopla from experts about how Crème Brûlée custard should be cooked. Some swear by the saucepan, while others insist on the oven. Julia Child used a saucepan with a pinch of cornstarch. Chef Gordon Ramsay insists on baking his Crème Brûlée in a bain-marie in the oven, later un-molding the ramekins like a Crème Caramel. Lots of home cooks refrain from making this dessert because they don’t own a kitchen torch. (Neither do I). It seems silly to buy a torch just to make this simple and inexpensive dessert. The cost of the torch far outweighs the cost of the dessert!

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO SALTED-CARAMEL CRÈME BRÛLÉE?
Pasture-raised egg yolks are the main ingredient in this Keto Low-Carb Salted-Caramel Creme Brulee. There’s a lot to like about egg yolks. Pasture-raised egg yolks are an excellent source of nutrition. They are rich in vitamins and minerals that are essential for good health. One large, pasture-raised egg yolk contains approximately 55 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, and 2 grams of protein.
In terms of vitamins, pasture-raised egg yolks are particularly high in vitamin D, which is important for bone health and immune function. They also contain vitamin A, which is important for vision and skin health, and vitamin B12, which is important for brain function and the production of red blood cells. In addition to vitamins, pasture-raised egg yolks are also a good source of minerals such as iron, phosphorus, and selenium. Iron is important for the production of red blood cells, while phosphorus is important for bone health and energy metabolism. Selenium is important for immune function and is also an antioxidant that can help protect against cellular damage. That said, pasture-raised egg yolks are a highly nutritious food that can provide many health benefits as part of a balanced diet.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO SALTED-CARAMEL CRÈME BRÛLÉE?
Keto Salted-Caramel Creme Brulee is the ideal dessert for wine because it’s not too sweet, thus allowing the wine to take center stage.
When pairing wine with sweet desserts make sure the wine must be sweeter than the actual dessert. Why? Because sweeter desserts alter the character of the wine’s acid, making it taste rancid (at best). But what do we do on the Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle with sugar in wine being forbidden? We have a few choices to consider. Here they are:
- Add a pinch of stevia or monk fruit to your wine glass bringing up the sweetness to harmonize with the dessert. If this is not your wine style, then we have a couple of alternative options…
- Drink whatever you like and don’t worry about pairing wine to your dessert.
- Add nuts to the creme brulee to heighten the pleasant bitterness in the dessert. Pair the acidity in a dry white wine or brut sparkling wine against that bitterness, helping to create a bridge between the wine and desert.
- Lower the sweetness in the dessert while increasing the saltiness and then choose a dry white wine with good acidity. The wine’s acidity will grab onto the contrasting saltiness to create harmony.
*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
