This tropical passion fruit and coconut twist on a classic crème brûlée is an easy but impressive dessert idea



  • passion fruit 4
  • double cream 300ml
  • coconut cream 150ml
  • milk 100ml
  • egg yolks 5
  • coconut sugar or golden caster sugar ) 4 tbsp
  • golden caster sugar for the top


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Sit six 175ml ramekins in a deep roasting tin.  Scoop the passion fruit out into a sieve and push the pulp through. Put the cream, coconut cream and milk in a pan over a low heat.

  • Step 2

    Put the egg yolks and coconut sugar in a mixing bowl and whisk with an electric hand whisk until it’s paler in colour and a bit bubbly, then stir in the passion fruit juice. Bring the cream mix almost to the boil and, as soon as you see bubbles, take the pan off the heat and pour the hot cream into the beaten egg yolks, stirring with a whisk. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a jug and spoon off some of the froth.

  • Step 3

    Pour hot water into the roasting tin until it comes about 2cm up the sides of the ramekins. Divide the hot cream between the ramekins so they’re filled almost to the top, move the tin into the oven and top the ramekins up. Cover loosely with a sheet of foil and cook for 30-35 minutes until they’re just set. They should wobble a bit in the middle.

  • Step 4

    Lift the ramekins out of the roasting tin and cool for a couple of minutes before chilling them.

  • Step 5

    When ready to serve, sprinkle a layer of caster sugar over each ramekin and spread it out evenly.  Use a blowtorch to caramelise the sugar, or put the ramekins under a very hot grill.
