A classic dessert, crème brûlée is a hit with even the pickiest dessert lovers. Made with just 5 ingredients, this Instant Pot version turns out a perfectly set custard every time. The crème brûlées can be made ahead of your next gathering and chilled in the fridge. Caramelize the sugar on top just before serving for that signature crunch.

How to Make It

1. Step
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and 6 tablespoons of sugar until well combined.
2. Step
In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the heavy cream, vanilla, and salt. Warm to 165°F (75°C),whisking occasionally to prevent a film from forming on top. Remove the pot from the heat.
3. Step
Temper the egg yolk mixture by pouring a small amount of the warmed cream mixture into the yolks and whisking to combine. Repeat with 3 more small additions, then mix in the remaining cream. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large liquid measuring cup with a pour spout.
4. Step
Pour the cream mixture into 6 1-ounce ramekins, filling each about ¾ of the way. Release any air bubbles on the surface by gently tapping with a spoon.
5. Step
Cover each ramekin tightly with aluminum foil.
6. Step
Pour the water into the Instant Pot, then set the ramekins inside. Pressure cook on low pressure for 13 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, then release the remaining pressure. Carefully transfer the ramekins from the Instant Pot to a wire rack to cool slightly, about 20 minutes.
7. Step
Chill the crème brûlées uncovered in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
8. Step
When ready to serve, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar evenly on top of each crème brûlée. Using a kitchen torch, brûlée the tops for about 1 minute each, or until sugar begins to bubble and turn dark golden brown. Let crème brûlée sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
9. Step
Garnish with berries of choice, then serve.
10. Step
Enjoy!
