National Crème Brûlée Day, which is celebrated every year in the United States on July 27, gives food lovers an opportunity to enjoy Crème brûlée, also known as burnt cream or Trinity crème.

Eggs, cream, sugar and water are all the ingredients you need to make crème brûlée. The mouth-watering dessert consists of a rich custard base and is topped with a contrasting layer of caramelized sugar. The dessert comes in several flavors like vanilla, coffee, chocolate, citrus, and nut. Other unique flavorings include green tea, lavender and liqueurs.

Vegan crème brûlée can be prepared using coconut and almond milk, sugar, corn starch, nutritional yeast and vanilla bean.

The best way to celebrate Crème Brûlée Day is by cooking up a classic version and sharing it with friends and family. You can also enjoy the day by throwing a crème brûlée-themed party.
