Caramel pudding – Steamed caramel pudding made with milk

caramel pudding

My favourite dessert since childhood, caramel pudding, is now my little son’s favourite too.  My mum used to make this with condensed milk which, undoubtedly had a very smooth, rich and creamier texture.  In the process of trying to produce a more healhier version,  I came across this recipe from an old recipe collection.  You can either steam this or bake in the oven.  However, steamed puddings always have a distict delicate texture, which I am addicted to.




Get ready with the following items:

 Whole milk  2 cups
 White sugar 3/4 cups
 Eggs (large)  4
 Vanilla essence lemon zest  1 tsp
Lemon zest (optional)  1/2 ts
 For the caramel
 White sugar  5 tbsp
 Water 3 tbsp

Let’s make it 




Heat it :

  • Pour milk into a pan and  heat up until it reaches the boiling point. (Do not boil)
  • Mix vanilla, switch off the flame and let the milk cool down.

Blend it / Whip it:

  • Drop sugar and eggs to the blender
  • Whizz just 5 seconds. (do not over do it as the sponginess of the pudding will be affected)
  • Now, slowly pour into the m
  • Whip with a hand whisker until frothy
  • Add vanilla and lemon zest

Make the Caramel 

  • Drop sugar and  water into a small pan
  • Bring to boil
  • Let the syrup turn light brown. (Do not let it turn too dark as the syrup will taste bitter)
  • Add 1 tbsp of hot water and let the syrup bubble away for a minute and switch off the flame.
  • The caramel is ready now

Steam 

  • Pour the caramel into the pudding bowl and circle around so that the caramel stick onto the sides of the bowl
  • Rub butter all around the bowl
  • 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 out the liquid)
  • 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.

  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Hello, Thank you for writing to me. Well, I am using Word press for my blog. It’s very helpful and easy to use.
