I have tried many recipes for caramel pudding. Sometime adding , sometimes subtracting the ingredients.
Searching the web for creamy and gooey caramel pudding & asking friends their versions.
And the one where eggs smell don't dominate the entire pudding.
Did little bit of my variations & At last perfected it.
A cuppa of milk
eggs with a zest of lemon. combined with condense milk & the dash of vanilla
Make it and taste it. You will love it.
2 large eggs or 3 eggs medium size
1 cup milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 tin condensed milk ( use nestle)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 pinch nutmeg powder or zest of 1 lemon (opt) (I have used lemon zest this time)
Pre Preparation:- Pour water in the oven tray to its 3/4 part. Pre heat the oven at 250 degrees for 5-10 minutes.
Prepare the caramel as demonstrated under "Preparing Caramel"
When hot , holding the tongs rotate the tin clockwise and anti clockwise so that caramel gets coated on all the walls of the tin.
NOTE:- I prepare my caramel sauce in the tin which can be further used for making caramel pudding
In a mixing bowl put together eggs + milk + sugar +Condense Milk + vanilla +
nutmeg or lemon zest
Mix in till all the ingredients are blended together
Now using a tea strainer pour this liquid in the caramelized tin.
Place the above in the pre heated oven in a water bath at 180 degrees for 40 minutes. After 20 min cover with aluminium foil to prevent the top from burning & slowing the process of baking After 40 minutes, open the oven and insert toothpick.If it comes out clean then it is done.
else keep checking every 5 minutes
When done remove from the oven and let it cool at room temperature. When cooled, place a plate on the tin & invert it upside down.Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
