This was a rough week in my kitchen. The weather around here has been absolutely horrible, overcast and rainy most days.

Which, is normally nice, cuddled inside with a good book. But this week I had quite a few recipes I wanted (NEEDED) to work on.

And on the one sunny day (Monday) I baked up two recipes. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see what happened. My first recipe was pumpkin cinnamon rolls.

I made the yeast dough, it rose and looked awesome. I rolled it out, added my toppings and they were giant beauties. Stuck them in the oven, and that’s when it happened.

After thirty minutes in the oven, I took them out. The filling leaked out all over the bottom of the pan and caramelized. Not necessarily a bad thing, until I took a bite of the cinnamon roll. They were the most disgusting things I have ever tasted. UGH.

Instead of going back to the drawing board, because I only have a few hours left to bake and photograph in my prime sunny spot, I decided to just bake up some cookies. From a batch of cookies that I already had in my freezer.

The first batch burned to a crisp. Oops. And the second batch I forgot to put parchment paper on my baking sheet and the caramel stuck like glue.

UGH. I promptly tweeted “Mondays. I quit you.”

So, I did what any good food blogger does. I drank a cup of coffee (oh, what, all food bloggers don’t relax with coffee?). And while drinking my coffee I realized I can make a quick batch of homemade coffee creamer. Surely I can’t mess that up right.

How to make Homemade Coffee Creamer

But, what flavor to make???

Last time I was at the grocery store I saw “Creme Brulee” flavored creamer. Have you had this? Oh my it’s delicious.

Instead of using a can of sweetened condensed milk, I used a can of evaporated milk. I heated this up on the stove top for a quick minute with the brown sugar, just long enough to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla extract and milk (I used fat free milk, but any kind would work great).

You guys, the flavor of this creamer is incredible. I’m often asked how to make my creamers sugar free, for today’s flavor you can use a brown sugar substitute and enjoy!

Now, time to get back in my kitchen and male this Cinnamon Cinnabon Cake. At least this time I’ve got some delicious coffee to give me peace!

How to make Coffee Creamer without Sweetened Condensed Milk:

  • In a small saucepan, heat up a can of evaporated milk with the brown sugar. Whisk over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Add your remaining milk (I usually use skim, but any will work) and vanilla. You can also substitute almond milk or coconut milk for the regular milk in this recipe.
  • Pour into a mason jar, shake and enjoy. Store in refrigerator.

How do I make sugar free and/or fat free coffee creamer:

  • Most large grocery stores carry fat free evaporated milk (or fat free sweetened condensed milk).
  • You can also substitute stevia brown sugar substitutes for the light brown sugar.
  • Instead of whole milk or higher fat milk, use skim (fat free) milk. You’ll love the flavor!

  1. Ugh I hate those days!! Oh my gosh and then they tend to follow you the entire week. I’m sorry, I hope it got better. This coffee creamer is DELISH!!! Pinned, of course. (And, BTW, pumpkin cinnamon rolls – pumpkin roll or pumpkin filling? Just curious so we don’t have a #greatminds day. 🙂 )

  2. Ugh, I feel your pain lady. Hate days like that. It’s raining buckets here today and I had planned on cooking/photographing. But I guess not anymore. No light in site! Love this creme brûlée coffee creamer!

  3. Girl your kitchen week was mine. I was on vacation but I still needed to shoot/bake. Everything I did, I ruined. Or the lighting was not right. Let’s just say right now it’s 915am here and I’m twiddling my thumbs WAITING for the sun so I can shoot. And it’s gray as gray can be. Oh boy 🙂 Your coffee creamer sounds amazing. Sometimes you need a splash of Baileys in your coffee too for those days 🙂

  5. Every Sunday morning we have a large family breakfast with the Aunts and Uncles, this will be a nice change.

  6. It sounds like you had an absolutely wretched Monday… But this delightful creamer was the result, so thanks for not giving up:) I love all of your creamer recipes and this one looks like it’s going to be my favorite! Great photos, but I can’t keep my eyes off that adorable spoon with the curlicue end:)

  7. I hate those days when you are just not meant to be in the kitchen! So frustraing to waste all that time & money. Rainy days sound nice right about now the 95 degree heat and humidity have kept me out of the kitchen lately, I just can’t handle it!! If I were to drink coffee crememer this would be the flavor- sounds delightful!

  8. This summer has been full of rainy days and it’s incredibly frustrating when your shot is otherwise perfect to have to fidget with the lighting. >_< I feel your pain, Aimee. But hey, now you can curl up with a nice coffee filled with this awesome creamer! Cream brulee needs to be in my coffee all day every day. 😀

  9. This looks amazing. I have learned to drink my coffee black for calorie intake reasons ;), however my teens who have started drinking coffee would love it if I kept this in the fridge!

  10. Wow – this sounds sooo delicious! I love the thought of making my own creamer, so I know exactly what’s in it!

  11. Oh my word, that’s so funny – I just posted pumpkin cinnamon rolls today! I hear you though, I had a run last week of just awful tasting stuff, ugh. This creamer though looks fabulous!

  12. You make the best coffee creamers! This flavor sounds like the perfect addition to my morning coffee!

  13. Can I make this recipe with almond milk instead of cow’s milk?

    I’m so glad that I found your recipe. I just found out that Bailey’s has discontinued their creme brulee creamer.
    I will try your recipe .

  23. nancy

    Actual recipe, with specific measurements? I can’t find.

  24. Soooooooo my teacher also feels the pain of a life without baileys creme burlee creamer, so i found this recipe, and i really hope its good cause if it is, she told me id be her favorite person besides her son, but above her husband.

  25. I’m yet another Bailey’s Creme Brulee REFUGEE! I made it two days without my creamer….and it looks like I found the right place!

  26. Jennifer

    i love this recipe so far, but just wondering. can you use dark brown sugar if you dont have light? i was looking for a creamer recipe that didnt involve evaporated or condensed milk (budget here), or half an half. wanted to try the vegan ones but i do NOT like the idea of powdered dates or cashews in my tea…EW lol. i like soy milk or almond milk in my tea..but well…making yer own creamer can be a pain. also, any ideas on how to make other flavors…like choc chip, irish cream…etc? thanks 🙂

  27. Lacy Rice

    I don’t have instagram so I can’t show you, but I just made this and it’s delicious!
