Sous Vide Hojicha Latte Crème Brûlée

  • Rate This
For the last recipe that I made for my in-laws in the Philippines, I created a hojicha latte crème brûlée. When my sister-in-law was in Victoria for my wedding, one thing she requested was a crème brûlée, but we didn’t have the luxury of time with the wedding going on. So during my visit to the Philippines, I decided to fulfill her request and make a hojicha latte crème brûlée for the family. Hojicha latte is one of her favourite drinks and has a sweet, nutty, and smoky flavour which made the crème brûlée even more delicious. If you have a kitchen scale, I recommend using it to weigh the ingredients, as egg sizes can vary. I have made batches where I didn’t use a scale and the crème brûlée came out slightly loose. This recipe yields 9 (250ml) canning jars.
