Instant Pot Keto Creme Brulee

One of my personal favorite desserts is creme brûlée. It is such a nice elegant ending to a wonderful meal. What may surprise you is just how easy it is to make, especially in the Instant pot.

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 5 tablespoons Keto sweetener Use 3 tablespoons for the cream mixture and reserve 2 for the topping
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. In a mixing bowl combine heavy whipping cream, yolks, 3 tablespoons sweetener and vanilla.
  2. Whisk together until well combined
  3. Pour mixture into 6 small ramekins
  4. Cover each ramekin individually with aluminum foil
  5. Add one cup of water to the bottom of the inner pot
  6. Place silicon steamer on top
  7. Carefully place three ramekins into the steamer
  8. Place the remaining three ramekins on top of the bottom three slightly offsetting them so that the bottom ones will support the top ones.
  9. Close lid and make sure valve is set to seal
  10. Cook on high pressure for 9 minutes.
  11. Let rest for 15 minutes
  12. Release steam and open lid
  13. Let cool and refrigerate for at least a few hours ( it’s best served cold, but I have been known to eat a warm one right out of the pot. They have more of a custard texture when eaten warm.)
  14. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Keto sweetener on top of each creme brûlée
  15. Place the ramekins onto a cookie sheet, so that you don’t end up burning your table or countertop. (Guess how I know that one!)
  16. Using a hand torch, burn the sugar until it darkens. Make sure to do this in a well ventilated area and be careful as you are working with an open flame. ( Just a note, the Keto sweetener will not get the hard crackle of sugar but it does come close, so if you have some non Keto diners, I usually top theirs with real sugar.)
