Ingredients 

  • 250 ml milk
  • 1/2 cup Caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar for syrup
  • 1 tspn Pure Vanilla extract

Process

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  • In a heavy saucepan add 1/4 cup castor sugar over medium heat & 1 tablespoon water into it.
  • Bring the mixture to  boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the sugar and water form a golden brown syrup, about 5 minutes. (This is called caramelization)
  • Remove from heat and pour the syrups into 3 ramekins. ( or you can use any baking dish ) and keep aside for 5 min to let the syrup cool down.
  • Now in a saucepan add 250 ml of milk over low heat; heat just until warm .
  • In a separate bowl break 3 eggs ,add 1/2 cup sugar and whisk till all the sugar is dissolved, add vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Now slowly pour the warm milk little by little and whisk ( since the milk is hot the eggs might get cooked so make sure you mix while you pour ).
  • Now pour the egg-milk-sugar mixture equally into the 3 ramekins .
  • Take a baking tray and keep the ramekins and pour some water on the tray to make a water bed.This will help the custard get cooked evenly from bottom as well.Water should be upto ⅓rd of the mould.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove and let it cool for 10 min,refrigerate for 5-6 hrs before serving.
  • To unmould , keep the serving dish or plate on top of the mould. Gently turn the serving down, so that the mould comes on top of the serving dish.
  • Tap the mould gently,and allow the custard to unmould itself from the mould.
  • If that doesnt help use a knife to detach the custard from the ramekins wall then unmould.
  • The quantity above yields 3 caramel custard 🙂 by the time I am drafting this post 2 are already eaten ,so that’s why you see 1 in the pic ,its irresistible 🙂 Ting !!!!!!!!!!! Cook and let me know how it turned out 😉
