- 4 cups eggnog
- 8 egg yolks
- 1/2 cup sugar
- whipped cream for topping
To make individual eggnog creme brulee ramekins:
Add 1/2 cup of the eggnog mixture to each ramekin (you'll need about 8-10 ramekins). Transfer the ramekins to a large baking dish/tray with high sides, filled halfway with water. Bake at 300F for 40-45 minutes, or until the edges are set but the center still jiggles a little - it will set as it cools. Carefully remove from oven and allow to cool.
To make family-style eggnog creme brulee:
Carefully pour the eggnog mixture into a ~1.5 qt oven-safe dish. Place the eggnog dish into a larger baking dish or tray filled halfway with water. Bake at 300F for about 90-110 minutes, or until the edges are set but the custard still jiggles in the center - it will set as it cools. Carefully remove from oven and allow to cool.
- Just like all creme brulee recipes, this one needs time to bake slowly at a low temperature and cool down. It is best to bake and chill this eggnog creme brulee the day before, and to caramelize the sugar topping the day you plan on serving this dessert.
- Baking time will vary depending on the shape and depth of your baking dish. When in doubt, bake a little longer until the edges are completely set.
