So I’m super excited that I was able to publish Ketofied! Comfort Foods Made Low Carb, the second cookbook from me and the website 🙂 Check it out and see all the new recipes you’ll be able to make!
If the book isn’t in your budget at the moment, DON’T WORRY – I am hosting a giveaway for (the only) print copy of the book I have. This also includes almond flour, erythritol, liquid stevia, and a chocoperfection sampler pack. I think you guys will love the prize! Check out the giveaway here, but be quick because it ends tonight!
So, now to the pots de crème. I’ve never tried pot de crème before, but from what I read before I started, they’re supposed to be very rich and filling. These are exactly that – extremely rich and decadent, very filling and could even be eaten by themselves, and definitely delicious! I know I was talking about a new take on fat bombs the other day, and these certainly qualify themselves, too!
I’d recommend making these for a special occasion, if people come over for dinner for example, as they’re an easy way to impress people with the deep flavors you’ll be able to impart in them. You can also change the recipe up really easily. If you don’t want to do a caramel flavored pot de crème, you could easily sub out the extracts to make pretty much any flavor you’d like! Check out this extract sampler pack to give you ideas!
Yields 4 Pot de Crème (or more depending on ramekin size)
- 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
- ¼ cup erythritol, powdered
- ¼ teaspoon liquid Stevia
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 4 large egg yolks
- 6 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon Ruled.me maple Syrup
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon maple extract
1. Preheat your oven to 300F. Start by separating the yolks of 4 eggs and setting them aside. You can save the whites to add to different cake recipes around the site.
3. Mix the powdered erythritol with 6 tbsp. water in a small saucepan.
4. Mix together 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1/4 tsp. liquid stevia, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1 tsp. maple extract in a bigger saucepan.
5. Bright both of the mixtures to a rolling boil. Once the cream reaches a boil, stir vigorously and turn heat down to low. Occasionally stir this as you work with the other mixture.
6. Once the water and erythritol has been boiling for a minute, add 1 tbsp. maple syrup. If you don’t want to make the whole maple syrup recipe for 1 tbsp., you’re welcome to sub in 1 tsp. Maple Extract + 1/4 tsp. Xanthan Gum if you’d like.
7. Whisk egg yolks well with a whisk until lighter in color.
8. Continue boiling the water and erythritol mixture until it has reduced some and a watery syrup is formed.
9. Pour the water and erythritol mixture into the heavy cream and stir to combine.
10. Slowly pour 1/4 of the cream mixture into the egg yolks while mixing. You want to temper the egg yolks so make sure you add slowly and not too much at once.
11. Measure out the mixture between 4 or 6 ramekins depending on the size of the ramekin.
12. Fill baking sheet 2/3 of the way with water. Put your ramekins in the water and bake at 300F for 40 minutes.
13. Take out of the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. You can not refrigerate them if you’d like them to be more of a light custard or pudding texture. You can eat them warm for a velvety soft and smooth texture.
14. Who are we kidding? Serve them up!
