This creamy creme brulee recipe combines dessert and an after-dinner drink all in one. Made with just six ingredients, this easy creme brulee is buzzy thanks to a pinch of espresso powder and a splash of coffee liqueur.

  • In a small saucepan, combine half-and-half and espresso powder; heat just to a boil. Gradually whisk hot cream mixture into yolk mixture. Stir in liqueur. Pour mixture evenly into eight 6-ounce ramekins or oven-safe mugs.

  • Place ramekins in two 13x9x2-inch baking pans. Pour enough boiling water into the pans to reach halfway up the sides of the ramekins.

  • Bake about 40 minutes or until centers appear nearly set when lightly shaken. Carefully remove pans from oven. Remove ramekins from water; cool on a wire rack. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  • Before serving, let custards stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. Sprinkle custards evenly with turbinado sugar. Place on a baking sheet. Caramelize sugar with a culinary torch or broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 4 to 5 minutes.* Serve immediately. If desired, serve with whipping cream. Makes 8 servings.

*Test Kitchen Tip:

Choose the culinary torch if your dishes are not broiler-safe.
