Crack through a layer of caramelized sugar to reveal a layer of sweet cream below, but you’re not done. Below the cream is your favorite fluffy cupcake! Welcome to the world of crème brûlée cupcakes!
How to Make Crème Brûlée Cupcakes
- Start by baking your favorite cupcake recipe. I kept it simple and used the Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake recipe.
- Instead of frosting with a traditional frosting like vanilla bean buttercream frosting, bake and chill crème brûlée (I used super easy to make pumpkin crème brûlée).
- Spread the chilled crème brûlée over the cooled cupcakes.
- Sprinkle with regular or maple sugar and brûlée with a culinary torch just before serving.
You can mix any flavor of crème brûlée with any cupcake flavor to create your dream crème brûlée cupcakes. If you give them a try, I’d love for you to share photos and reviews on the Cupcake Project Facebook page. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
