CREME' CARAMEL/CARAMEL CUSTARD...a fab party dessert!

A really easy fool proof recipe of this perfect dessert!...the secret here is to use full cream Milk of the best quality you can find, I have perfected this recipe over a period of several years, since it is difficult to achieve that perfect melt-in-the-mouth creamy gorgeousness the Creme' Caramel deserves!!!
for the caramel
  • Sugar-6 tbsp

  • Water-2 tbsp

For the Custard
  • Whole/Full cream Milk-1 and 1/2 cups

  • Skim Milk Powder- 100 gms

  • Eggs-4

  • Pure Vanilla extract- 2 tsp

  • Condensed Milk- 5 tbsp

  • Combine the sugar and water for the caramel and set on heat, let the sugar  melt and bubble away, keep stirring all the time, till it achieves a deep brown/golden colour.

  • Take a metallic mould, one which can be put in the pressure cooker for steaming later.

  • Pour hot caramel and swirl all around quickly before it hardens, no need to grease, set aside.

  • Combine all the ingredients for the custard in a large bowl and beat well.

  • Pour into prepared tin, and cover with a piece of foil.

  • Steam in pressure cooker without whistle for 20 minutes,switch off flame and let cool

Invert onto serving plate and serve warm or chilled along with Fruits/Vanilla Ice cream/whipped cream.
