When it comes to indulgent desserts, few things can compare to the smooth, velvety goodness of caramel pudding. With its rich caramel flavor and luscious texture, this classic dessert is a crowd-pleaser that will leave your taste buds dancing with delight. If you're ready to embark on a culinary adventure and treat yourself to a delectable sweet treat, let's dive into the world of caramel pudding with this easy and irresistible recipe.

Ingredients:

For the caramel sauce:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

For the pudding:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Place a large baking dish filled with about 1 inch of water in the oven. This will serve as a water bath to ensure gentle and even cooking of the pudding.

  2. To make the caramel sauce, combine the granulated sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, and then stop stirring. Allow the mixture to cook undisturbed until it turns a deep amber color, swirling the pan occasionally to ensure even browning. This process may take around 10 minutes. Be careful not to let it burn.

  3. Once the caramel reaches the desired color, quickly pour it into a 9-inch round baking dish. Tilt the dish to coat the bottom evenly with the caramel sauce. Set it aside to cool and harden.

  4. In a separate saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it comes to a simmer. Remove it from the heat and set it aside to cool slightly.

  5. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, water, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.

  6. Slowly pour the warm milk into the egg mixture, whisking continuously. Make sure to do this gradually to prevent the eggs from scrambling.

  7. Strain the custard mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any lumps or air bubbles. This step will ensure a smooth and creamy pudding.

  8. Carefully pour the strained custard mixture into the prepared caramel-coated baking dish.

  9. Place the baking dish inside the larger dish filled with water in the preheated oven. The water should come up about halfway up the sides of the pudding dish.

  10. Bake for approximately 50-60 minutes or until the pudding is set but still slightly jiggly in the center. Keep a close eye on it during the last few minutes to avoid overcooking.

  11. Once done, remove the caramel pudding from the oven and the water bath. Allow it to cool completely at room temperature.

  12. Once cooled, cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to fully set.

  13. To serve, run a knife around the edges of the dish to loosen the pudding. Place a serving plate on top of the dish and quickly invert it, allowing the caramel sauce to drizzle over the pudding.

  14. Slice the caramel pudding into individual servings and enjoy its creamy texture and caramel-infused sweetness.

Caramel pudding is a delightful dessert that can be enjoyed on its own or served with a dollop of whipped cream or a sprinkle of chopped nuts for added texture. Its smooth and velvety consistency, coupled with the luscious caramel flavor, will make it an instant favorite among family and friends.

So, the next time you're craving a decadent treat, whip up a batch of homemade caramel pudding and indulge in its irresistible allure. From its silky custard to its delightful caramel sauce, this recipe is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you wanting more. Bon appétit!
