Welcome to take a tentative spoonful of this gorgeous pudding and I bet, you won’t be able to stop yourself eating a whole big bowl of it!

You can merrily dig your spoon through the soft, cushiony middle of this pudding and scoop up a big piece of it with treacle dripping down! A merry sight to anyone with a sweet tooth indeed!

This oven-baked version is a real bliss on a busy day when you’re cooking 4 dishes at the same time for a party or fixing an elaborate meal.  Just stick the pudding into the oven, set the timer, and forget about it.  While you are attending to numerous other stuff, the oven will bake it to perfection!

My advice is that you must curb your temptation to demolish the whole dish with the biggest spoon, you must muster all your courage and leave the baked pudding in the fridge for at least up to 4-5 hrs. After a long, undisturbed chill will give such a beautiful texture and taste to it.

So, let’s make it:

You will need these few ingredients :

 Condensed milk can 380g or 400 g (small size)
 White sugar 1 tbsp
 Water2 cans from the empty condensed milk can
 Lemon zest/Vanilla1 lemon peel grated into tiny pieces and  Vanilla 2 tsp
 Eggs6 large

Set the oven to 180 C

Make The Caramel 

  • Sugar 5 tbsp
  • Water 1/2 cup
  • Place sugar and water in a pan and boil in high heat
  • Do not stir with a spoon because the caramel can stick on it.  Hold from both ends and shake the pan from time to time
  • The caramel will turn into a lovely golden colour after several minutes
  • Immediately,  switch off the flame and take the pan out
  • Straightaway, pour the caramel on to the bottom of the pudding bowl or tray and spread it all over

Rub Butter

  • Just after pouring caramel into the tray, take a little butter onto your hand and rub it around the tray so that the pudding will not stick to the tray/bowl once baked

All into the Blender

Into your blender jar pour all the following ingredients;

  • Condensed milk tin – all of it
  • Wash the tin and 1 1/2 tins of water
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 2 tbsp Vanilla

Blend at high speed exactly for 30 seconds.

Into the dish

  • Pour the creamy liquid into a tray or a pyrex dish leaving some space from the top for the pudding to rise
  • Drop lemon zest
  • Place the pudding tray on another wider tray filled 1/4 of it with water. (Double boiling)


  • Cover the pudding tray loosely with a foil or you can opt for not covering it
  • Gently place the double trays in the oven and bake for 40mins (Stab a skewer and check. If the tip of the skewer comes out clean then the pudding is done!)


  • Let the pudding sit until completely cooled off
  • Place in the fridge for upto 5hrs
  • Cut into equal size squares and scrape them out, dipping a flat knife or a spatula to the bottom Then, scoop out some caramel juices and pour over the pudding squares before serving
  • Yummy!

Easy Caramel pudding/ Spanish Flan recipe with fresh milk

crème' caramel

Caramel pudding, Cre’me caramel or Spanish Flan has been my favourite dessert since childhood.  Who can resist such a dainty golden pudding sitting on a pool of golden syrup! Yum! Yum!

My mum made this with condensed milk which, undoubtedly had a very smooth, rich, and creamier texture. Being a seeker of healthy versions of any dish, I replaced condensed milk with fresh whole milk and achieved grand results, which I would love to share with you all.

You can either steam or bake it in the oven. However, steamed puddings always have a distinct delicate texture than the oven-baked ones, which I am addicted to. Nothing could possibly go wrong with this recipe as it could be the most simplest dessert pudding ever! So, grab the milk, eggs and sugar and let’s get started!

Make the Caramel 

  • Drop sugar and water into a small pan

  • Pour the milky liquid in
  • Cover the top tightly with a foil
  • Place a close fitting plate on
  • Fill a large pan half with water
  • Drop a tea towel or place a saucepan stand on the bottom (This will prevent the pudding bowl shake too much while boiling and spilling the liquid out)
  • Dip the pudding bowl slowly into the middle of the pan
  • Cover the large pan with a foil or a tea towel first and then close with the lid.
  • Place the pan on stove  under high flame and steam for 1 hr.  Check the water level half way and pour boiling water if needed.

Cool it off

  • Take the pudding bowl out and let it cool off completely
  • Place the bowl in the fridge
  • Once chilled loosen the pudding by running knife or a spatula around
  • Then place a flat, wide plate on top of the pudding bowl and gently turn the bowl upside down
  • Give a gentle knock on the bottom of the bowl.
  • Slowly, lift the bowl up
