A silky smooth baked custard with a sweet caramel sauce. This purin aka creme caramel is wobbly, sweet and delicious




  • 70 g Sugar (1/3 cup)
  • 1 tbsp Water


  • 500 ml Milk (2 cups)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 70 g Sugar (1/3 cup)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla



  1. In a medium saucepan combine the sugar and water
  2. Heat on medium low heat until the sugar has dissolved and tuned a golden brown
  3. Remove from heat and distribute the caramel between 4 large ramekins


  1. Preheat the oven to 150C/305F
  2. Combine the sugar and milk in the same saucepan, heat until the sugar has dissolved and the milk is steaming
  3. In a medium sized bowl combine the eggs and vanilla
  4. Add the milk to the eggs, whisking gently as you pour
  5. Once combined pour the mixture slowly through a fine meshed sieve
  6. Then portion the mixture between the 4 ramekins
  7. Fold a tea towel in half and place on the bottom of a baking tray, then fill the tray 1/4 of the way up with boiling water
  8. Place the ramekins in the tray and bake for 45-50 minutes (the time will vary depending on your mould)
  9. Remove ramekins when the custard has set on the outer edges and the centre is still slightly jiggly
  10. Cool and refrigerate overnight, minimum 4 hours
  11. To serve run the edges of the ramekin in hot water, then run a knife around the top edge of the pudding
  12. Turn the ramekin upside down on your serving plate, and while holding the ramekin down on the plate give it few big shakes to ease the pudding out
  13. Enjoy!
