What Is Creme Brulee

If you have never had a creme brulee, you might be thinking what exactly is creme brulee. Basically, it is a custard that is made with a few basic pantry and fridge ingredients like eggs, vanilla, heavy cream, and more. You bake it to cook the brulee through, and then the magical part happens once you pull it from the Instant Pot.

You top your custard with sugar and then use a torch to create this carmelized coating on top. Then as you use your spoon you break into the top for that crunch next to the sweet and creamy filling. 

I have 4 ramekins (4 ounces) underneath the aluminum foil and one on top. I placed another piece of aluminum foil over the top of this one before closing my lid.

  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sugar for melting, I used organic sugar and found it burned easier than regular sugar


  1. Put your trivet into your pot and pour in 1 1/2 cups water.
  2. Whisk together eggs yolks, 1/3 cup sugar and a pinch of salt.
  3. Add in cream and vanilla and whisk until well blended.
  4. Pour into ramekins (fill just below the top so you do not spill putting into your pot)
  5. Place ramekins on the trivet in your pot. Place a layer of aluminum foil over the top of your ramekins. You can place another few ramekins on top and then repeat placing a layer of aluminum foil over the top.
  6. Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and set the timer for 6 minutes.
  7. Natural release for 10 minutes. Finish with a quick release.
  8. Carefully remove the ramekins from the Instant Pot. Refrigerate the creme brulee for at least 2 hours.
  9. After a couple of hours, take the ramekins out of the refrigerator.
  10. Sprinkle the tops with about 1 teaspoon of sugar and use a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar.
  11. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers
