Eggless Nutella Crème Brûlée

Creme Brulee - French dessert

I had a wish to make this french popular  Crème Brûlée a lot as though it was an egg based custard topped with caramel I wanted to make eggless and so this week was the perfect theme to try out this dessert . I saw this in a Tv show and skipping the egg part I followed the recipe and used agar agar and cornflour to get the consistency. Addition of chocolate nut spread was a great twist and made the dessert addictive. This is an very delicious and creamy dessert which are generally served in single serving ramekins. To get the caramel on as I didn't have a Blow torch I used a heated Steal spoon. 

This is an very easy to make and delicious dessert which is a popular dessert in french cuisine . In the traditional Creme Brulee they make use of a blow torch to make a crispy caramel crust if you own one you can try with it. This is My fav dessert now and very addictive one.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38. .Lets Move on to the recipe..
