Caramel Custard Pudding



I managed to make these caramel custard puddings on my third attempt.  Ingredients are simple, eggs, milk, sugar, water and some unsalted butter.

There is a very neat video on youtube which you can check on the making of the puddings
Cooking with Dog - How to make custard pudding

Caramel ingredients and method:

4 tbsp. sugar, 1 tbsp. water ( I used 1.5 tbsp.)
1.5 or 2 tbsp. Hot water.

Firstly prepare 4 ramekins and use a little unsalted butter to grease all around for easy removal of pudding.

Use a small pot, put the sugar and water and let it melt till you get golden brown colour. Use medium heat.




Remove from fire and then add 1.5 or 2 tablespoon hot water into the caramel and swirl.



Pour evenly into the prepared ramekins.


Custard Pudding Ingredients and Method

2 eggs, 250 ml milk and 5 tablespoon sugar.

Beat 2 eggs and whisk inside a medium bowl.  Make sure whisk head doesn't leave the base of the bowl. Set aside.



Use a pot and put the milk and sugar in. Use the stove and on low fire.  Stir with spatula till sugar is melted.


Pour milk mixture into egg while whisking.


My method : Strain the egg mixture into a pitcher directly with a sieve.



Pour into the prepared ramekins and cover the top with aluminium foil tightly.

I use my Happy Call Pan - brown colour.

Pour some water into the pan and line with a dish cloth on the base. Heat the water with low fire.
When water is warm, place the cups inside and steam for 18-20 minutes with cover  closed.
Make sure that the water does not boil! Or the custard surface will be rough and not smooth.



Put the dish cloth on base with water and heated up.

This is how the custard looks after 20 minutes of steaming.  Please cover the top with foil. Let them cool and place in fridge to chill about 1 hr.


Remove the pudding by using the knife to run round the cups and tilt onto a plate to eat.





Happy cooking!
