SCD Coconut Milk Crème Brulée (DF, EF)

SCD Coconut Milk Crème Brulée (DF, EF)

Crème Brulée is both a delicious and fun dessert, but the traditional recipes call for both dairy milk and whole eggs. A few months ago, adapting such a recipe to my family's needs would not have been so challening since coconut milk can be used in the place of diary milk, but since a new diagnosis of egg white for two memebers of the family, life has been filled with experiments.

Add my desire to be as close to SCD legal due to my own health challenges and the results are delicious, but often do not look exactly like the original. In the case of Crème Brulée, I have elected to omit the sugar burnt for the hard shell. Instead, I simply drizzled some honey on top and the entire family enjoys our updated version.
