Ingredients (serves 4)

For the custard

  • 1 ½ cup milk

  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence

For the caramel sauce

  • 3 tbsp water
  • ⅓ cup sugar


  • 4 pudding moulds or ramekins 


  1. For the caramel sauce: Add sugar and water into a saucepan over medium-high heat until all the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Keep cooking the mixture until it turns into golden brown.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into pudding moulds (or ramekins). Set aside for further use. Preheat oven to 150
  4. For the custard: Pour milk into a jug and microwave it for about 1 minute and 30 seconds to heat it up.
  5. In a bowl, combine egg, sugar and vanilla essence together. Then add the warm milk to the egg mixture gradually and stir to combine. 
  6. Using a sieve or a strainer, strain the custard. 
  7. Pour the mixture equally into the pudding moulds, on top of the caramel sauce. Place the moulds in a shallow pan and add 3 to 4 cups of hot water into the pan. It should come up about halfway of the moulds. Check out how Nino’s Home does it in the video below:
