Salted Caramel Creme Brûlée Recipe

Sunkissed Kitchen Creme Brûlée with berries on a plate

I remember the first time I had a creme brûlée: I was 9 years old and on a cruise with my parents. I had no idea what it was, but my parents insisted on ordering one for each of us. When they brought out the dessert, I was captivated by the small dish with a beautiful golden layer on top. I finished it within seconds. After that night, I begged my mother for creme brûlée every chance I could. My mother tried every recipe she could find but nothing compared to the one I had on the cruise that day.

To this day, there are some nights when I think back to that night and crave a creme brûlée. Thankfully, I can satisfy cravings with this recipe from Michelle Miller of Sunkissed Kitchen. This dish can be prepared in the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-in Wall Oven and will leave you wanting more. Your sweet tooth will thank you (I know mine does)!


Sunkissed Kitchen Creme Brûlée ingredients


  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar


SHARP SuperSteam+ Wall Oven Creme brûlée baking


  1. In a small saucepan, add coconut sugar and water. Heat the mixture over medium heat, allowing it to come to a boil. Shake the pan a few times, and allow it to boil for about a minute.
  2. Lower the heat to medium low, and slowly add the heavy whipping cream until the mixture is uniform in color. Bring the cream mixture to a low boil, then remove from heat. Add the sea salt.
  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add egg yolks and whisk them well. While whisking, slowly add the heavy whipping cream, until the egg yolks are fully incorporated.
  4. Divide the custard between 4 ramekins.
  5. Preheat the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-in Wall Oven on the Steam setting on Water Bath at 275º F for 30 minutes.
  6. Add the custards to the baking tray on the lower rack, and allow to bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Once the custards have cooled completely, refrigerate them for at least an hour to chill.
  8. When ready to serve, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar on top of each custard in an even layer.
  9. Use a kitchen torch to melt the sugar on the top of each custard, and serve immediately.

*Coconut sugar naturally has a caramel flavor, so is a natural addition to this dessert. Granulated sugar will also caramelize, so it’s okay to use it as a substitute. Allow the granulated sugar to caramelize until it’s a deep golden color, which will take longer than the minute instructed.

Turn these into a classic creme brulee by subbing granulated sugar for the coconut sugar and omitting the sea salt. Allow the sugar and water mixture to come to a boil, and then lower the temperature quickly to keep it from caramelizing. If desired, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract along with the egg yolks.
