Delicious vegan crème brûlée made with the crispy golden crust on top

Crème Brûlée is a classic French dessert that literally translates to ‘burnt cream’. It is enjoyed by many around the world. Traditionally, it is made with cream, eggs, and sugar, making it not vegan-friendly. However, this recipe allows vegans to enjoy this delicious dessert with simple and easy alternatives!

This crème brûlée premix by Double Happiness (a natural baby food provider) is created with no artificial colouring, no preservatives, no trans fat and no gelatin. The components to make this crème brûlée taste as good as the real deal, and have been researched and developed with carob bean gum (extracted from the seeds of the carob tree and contains antioxidants + low amounts of sugar) and red seaweed.

I have used this premix to make this dessert in literally 5 minutes. It was so simple. Most importantly, it tasted amazing.

Pairing this with some whole wheat banana egg waffles was the best breakfast treat for my little foodies. I have added the egg waffle recipe and all the tips on how to make it at the bottom on this page. I hope you all enjoy this one!

The Perfect Summer Treat: Vegan Crème Brûlée with Banana Egg Waffles (Photo by Divya Butani)

What Are Egg Waffles?

Egg waffles are also known as  雞蛋仔 (literally translated to ‘little eggs’). This popular street food snack originated in Hong Kong. They are made using a special mold that creates a grid-like pattern of small, puffy spheres, which are crispy on the outside by soft on the inside.

The batter is typically made with flour, eggs and sugar and flavored with various kinds of sweet or savoury condiments like chocolate, green tea or peanut butter.

The Technique For Egg Waffles

Making the perfect egg waffles requires a lot of practice. It is harder than it looks. Since these waffles are dome shaped and hollow on the inside, the perfect speed to spread the batter on the bottom and top of the mold is vital.

Before you start, the waffle maker needs to be buttered well. Skipping this step will make your batter stick to the mold and pull apart.

  • You need to pour enough batter onto the center of the mold to ensure all crevasses are covered
  • Twisting the mold with your wrist for a few seconds helps push the batter to the edges of the mold
  • Switching on the heat before you pour the batter rather than after you butter the mold is a handy trick

Another handy tip is to also ensure your batter is smooth and runny, and not thick. I have used whole wheat flour for this recipe, so it does end up being a little more dense than using all-purpose flour. Nonetheless, you can add a tbsp of water bit by bit, to reach a smoother consistency.
