My husband, Jacob is a sweet tooth who loves coffee everything!
I’m more of savory person than dessert, so when I make desserts, it’s literally for him or for other people.
Because Jacob loves coffee everything, I always give a twist with espresso/coffee flavor to all the desserts I can!
When I created Matcha Crème Brûlée for freelance job, I was like,
“Why haven’t I made Espresso Crème Brûlée?! “
So I had to make it and then, of course, I had to share the recipe with you all!
The idea of making Crème Brûlée can be a bit intimidating for some people,
but only fancy thing about this dessert is torch.
Which is you can get it so easily now days from online, kitchen store or even regular grocery stores!
Torch is a great tool to have in your kitchen, I definitely recommend you to invest one if you love cooking!
Hope you give this Espresso Crème BrûléePrint

How to malt the sugar in the oven
Broiler could work, but not oven.
Could I use instant coffee powder instead of espresso powder?
