Eggless Caramel Pudding / Creme Caramel

I posted a creme caramel recipe(by martha stewart) that I tried some time back. It was perfect to taste and I loved the texture too. Though everything was great about the recipe I ended up making an eggless version too. This recipe was not looked out on purpose but just came up when I looking for something else on youtube. When I saw the post name I thought I should have a look at it. The recipe was so very simple that I could not resist making it immediately and yes it turned out awesome too. It uses agar-agar to get the pudding effect and the dessert was really creamy

Caramel pudding or creme caramel is a perfect dessert to serve if you have guests coming over and you have some time to do a little prep work. This recipe works like a charm and you in luck if you are looking for an eggless version. Mix ingredients up and then boil the mix for a while. Finally set it on hardened caramel and you are good to go. Check the pudding in 30 minutes and enjoy the soft, chilled and creamy dessert

Since this dessert can be made a day ahead, you can be relaxed when you plan dinner for a happy get-together with your wonderful group of friends

Serves... 2 ppl
Serve option... Chilled

This is what u'll need...

Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup + 2 tbspn
Vanilla - 1/2 tspn
Egg - 1
Egg yolk - 1
Agar-Agar - 5 gms

Here is the stir....

  • Break/cut agar-agar strips into small pieces and soak it in water for 15-30 minutes
  • To make the caramel, add 1/4 cup of sugar to a pan
  • Keep stirring it on medium flame and the sugar will start changing colour. Continue stirring until it reaches a beautiful amber colour. Turn off as soon as it reaches this colour as it will continue cooking and darkening due to the heat in the mixture and will darken a little more. This is the caramel that gives a beautiful golden colour on top of the pudding 

  • Pour this into 2 ramekins or moulds to cover the bottom evenly. Keep this aside and let the caramel harden
  • Meanwhile pour a cup of milk into a medium saucepan and add 2 tablespoons of sugar to it. You can add more sugar if you wan. I like it milk so have used less than the quantity recommended in the recipe

  • Pour 1/4 cup of cream into the milk. Also add about 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla essence to it

  • Drain the water from soaked agar-agar and add it to the milk and cream mixture. Stir everything well with a whisk

  • Place this mixture on medium heat and keep stirring it until the agar-agar is completely dissolved
  • Continue stirring it for couple more minutes until the mixture is bubbling and boiling
  • Strain the mixture through a sieve to remove any undissolved agar-agar
  • Check if the caramel has hardened. If yes the pour the mixture slowly into the bowls. If the caramel hasnt hardened wait for a few more minutes else the caramel will mix with the mixture and spoil the look and taste of the pudding
  • Chill this in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until set
  • Once the pudding is set gently press the sides of the pudding so that it releases itself from the sides of the bowl
  • Place a small plate on top of the bowl and invert the plate and bowl together so that the pudding can slide to the plate 
  • Serve it to your ones and yourself too and enjoy the creamy luscious pudding

                                              • Soaking the gelatin softens the strand and helps it dissolve easily
                                              • The milk mixture should boil and bubble for a couple of minutes before you turn off the heat
                                              • Adjust sugar to suit your taste. I like it mild
                                              • Pour the pudding mixture into the ramekins only after the caramel has hardened
