Caramel Pudding (Caramel Custard Pudding) / Flan Recipe

Rajma Masala
I tried this pudding from vahrevah and have made this 2-3 times and its a no fail recipe. The ingredients are easy to fetch from ur pantry with no mess, it comes out perfect everytime.

My lil one who loves pudding enjoyed this too and whenever she sees the ramkeins she would ask for pudding :) She likes most of the puddings either chocolate or plain custard pudding but she loves this egg pudding a bit more than the other puddings.

Method:

    For making caramel :
  1. Add sugar in a dry pan and leave it untouched until the sugar melts down completely and turns slightly brown.Add water and the sugar syrup will start bubbling up.Do not stir just swirl to heat up evenly.

  2. Once the mixture turns golden brown then pour the caramel into moulds or ramekins immediately so that spreads to fill the base. Take a large baking pan and pour water upto 1 inch height. Arrange the ramekins inside the pan with water.

  3. For making vanilla pudding:
  4. Beat eggs until fluffy then add sugar and beat it well until the sugar dissolves completely. I used my whisk to beat until fluffy.

  5. Heat milk and allow it to boil. Once boiled, remove it from flame and cool it down for few mins then add it to the egg sugar mixture and beat for few mins. Add the vanilla essence , give a quick stir. Strain this through a strainer to remove undissolved egg white strands.

  6. Now pour the milk egg mixture into the prepared ramkeins.Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C. Now leave the pan with ramekins arranged on lower rack of the oven. Bake in 375°F/190°C or 35-45 mins. Check by inserting a fork if it comes out clean, then ur pudding is ready.

Allow it to cool for a while then refrigerate for an hour atleast before serving. At the time of serving run a knife around the edges of the pudding to loosen a bit then invert the ramekins on the serving plate. A delicious caramel coated vanilla pudding or flan is ready :)

The caramel taste hides the eggy flavour giving it a nice outer coating. I luved the way the caramel drops when inverted. A rich and delicious dessert easy to whip up too.

My Notes:

  • Dont let the caramel get more dark then the pudding will have a bitter tasting caramel.Also the colour purely depends on your taste.
  • Also allow the caramel to spread through all sides of the bottom base of the container you use for setting the pudding.
  • The pudding that went inside the oven had a golden top while the outer ones had the normal cream top. But the taste of the pudding doesnt get affected at all.

  42. Hi Sharmi,

    I tried this one out and it was superb. My niece and nephew wanted a second round of the pudding. It was so simple to make it. Your pictures and step by step method was really helpful. Thank you for the recipe.

  43. Wow! I used to make this a long time back and used to love it! I thought of making this again a few days back only to realize I had lost the recipe. So I found your recipe yesterday and made it. I did remember though that I used to add custard powder too (I like the custard taste) and boil the milk for longer till it reduced from 1 liter to about 600 ml. So I put 1 less egg and added 1 tbsp of custard powder. I didn't boil the milk that long. And it turned out great! The earlier one (with longer boiled milk) used to be a richer texture but this was awesome too! Thanks for sharing.
    And such an impressive blog you have here. I can see how much effort you put in cooking and then presenting. No wonder it returned as the top entry when I searched for this recipe :)

    1. I think you can steam it but really not sure about the method and timing. May be refer my bread caramel pudding where I've steamed the pudding. Hope this helps!

  47. I have no idea why when i make the caramel, the sugar clumbs together and the the sugar never changes its colour after i add water.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Keep in sim while making caramel it will surely change its color...but I can understand it does need practise to make caramel so keep trying :)

  53. Hi sharmilee, I followed ur recipe to the notch and the taste was perfect. However the caramel at the bottom ended up being hard after baking :( I didnt use ramekins but aluminium tin cups. Any tips on how to avoid it in the future ?
