Heck yes, folks! This is like the day hell froze over and the heavens rained lactose-free keylime pies from clouds of Crème Brûlée! Mmmmm ... I actually found lactose-free cream for cooking here in Norway!
This past weekend I was at my in-laws and they made wicked homemade Crème Brûlée. I've never had one so good since I was in Nice, France, this past spring. I haven't made it yet as I need to find some raw vanilla pieces to boil (yeah - it's that homemade!) but it seemed to be pretty easy.
I don't have a torch to crust the top like the recipe asks for, perhaps I'll just light the whole top of the pan on fire ... what an amazing show that would be! :D
Unfortunately I could only have a taste (let's not lie - I ate the whole thing) but it caused me lots of stomach pain and grief which is not that enjoyable in the end.
I am going to conduct this recipe and make a couple of lactose-free changes and see how it flies. I'll let you know how it goes in a couple of days, but for now, I am so thankful to have found lactose-free cream! :D
