What is creme brulee?

Creme brulee is a rich custard dessert that’s sealed with a caramelised sugar topping.

It originates from France and translates as ‘burnt cream.’

Traditionally, the custard is made with cream and eggs but in the recipe below we use soya milk and vegan custard powder.

Usually, creme brulee has a classic vanilla flavour but our recipe consists of bananas and coconut milk for a gorgeous banoffee layer.

Is soy milk a good substitute for milk in custard?

Soy milk can be used in the same quantities as dairy milk would be for foods like custard. It’s great for both baking and cooking.

The consistency of soy milk is similar to dairy milk so you’ll end up with a similar custard, as soy milk is flavourless unlike other plant milks like almond or hazelnut.
