Slow Cooker Creme Brulee

  • Cooking Time:

    2-4 hours
  • Servings:



2 c. heavy cream
5 egg yolks
1/2 c. sugar (baker's or fine sugar is better so the granules disappear)
1 T. good vanilla
1/4 c. raw sugar (for topping)


  1. Use a heat-resistant dish that fits inside of your stoneware insert (crock).
  2. Place it inside, using a cup or pitcher, pour water around the edges so there is water 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up the sides of the dish. Push it down with your hand if it starts to float up. Take the dish back out. If you have separate dessert ramekins, do the same thing after nestling them all inside.
  3. Whip the egg yolks in a bowl and slowly add the cream and baking sugar while mixing.
  4. Add the vanilla. Pour mixture into the dish and carefully lower into the stoneware without sloshing water into the dish.
  5. Cover. Cook on High for 2-4 hours. (NOTE: If you are using little ramekins, check after an hour; I’m not sure how long they will take. Custard should be set with the center still a bit jiggly. Touch lightly with your finger to check. Unlike an oven, it will be difficult to overcook this. Try not to worry.)
  6. VERY carefully (use oven gloves!) remove dish and let cool completely on counter, then chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
  7. Sprinkle the raw sugar evenly over the top of the custard. Move your oven rack to the top rack and broil for 3-10 minutes, checking often. The sugar will boil and brown.
  8. Cool again in the fridge for a few hours.

Happy Crocking!
