How to Make Crème Caramel Pudding
To create a delicious caramel pudding, follow these step-by-step instructions. Begin by preheating your oven to 180℃.
In a pot, warm the milk along with granulated sugar over low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Allow the mixture to cool slightly. This step ensures that the sugar incorporates smoothly into the milk.
Next, whisk the eggs thoroughly in a separate bowl. Gradually add the milk mixture and a dash of vanilla essence to the beaten eggs, continuously whisking to ensure proper blending. This step combines the flavors and creates a smooth custard base. For a velvety texture, strain the mixture twice to remove any lumps or impurities. Set the mixture aside.
To prepare the caramel, take a non-stick pan and place it over medium heat. Add granulated sugar and a little water to the pan, stirring gently until the sugar melts and turns a rich, golden brown color. Be careful while handling the hot caramel.
Once the caramel is ready, carefully pour it into a cup or ramekin, ensuring an even coating along the bottom. Then, pour the prepared pudding mixture over the caramel.
To bake the pudding, create a water bath by placing the cups or ramekins in a larger baking dish filled with hot water.
This gentle cooking method ensures even heat distribution and prevents the pudding from curdling. Place the water bath in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until the pudding is set and slightly jiggly in the center.
Once the pudding is baked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool at room temperature for a while. Then, transfer the caramel pudding to the refrigerator and let it chill for about 1 hour to enhance its creamy texture and flavors.
Finally, when the caramel pudding is thoroughly chilled, it is ready to be served. Gently invert each cup or ramekin onto a dessert plate, allowing the luscious caramel to cascade over the pudding.
The chilled caramel pudding is now ready to be enjoyed as a delectable dessert that will delight your taste.
