Tips to make Perfect Caramel custard:
Golden caramel Always keep the flame in low when making a caramel sauce to prevent burning, lighter the colour, sweeter the sauce
Warm milk Bring down the milk temperature to warm, then add to the eggs, otherwise, the egg and milk might curdle
Whisking– You can whisk the custard sauce using hand blender or whisker for the better result.
Strain The key to the silky caramel pudding is to strain the milk mixture before you pour into the mould.
Avoid egg smell– To avoid the egg smell of the milk mixture add vanilla essence
Check for doneness insert a toothpick in the middle of caramel custard, if there is no liquid leaking out the toothpick appears to be moist. Caramel custard is ready.
Grease with butter you can grease the mould with butter before you add the caramel sauce. so it is easy to slide out.
Run the knife Before you serve,place the moulds in hot water for few seconds, to melt the butter, then run a knife over the sides of the mould to slide out easily.
Step by step pictures:
Invert the plate over the mould and flip it up-side down, tap the mould twice, and gently remove the mould.. you can a see a caramel is run down sides of the custard!!
