Creme Caramel …or caramel custard as it is commonly known , is a wobbly and light  oven steamed dessert. 

Its an all time favourite. Its a milk and egg mixture baked in a dish with sweet caramel lining at its base . 
Caramel is nothing but burnt sugar in simple words. It gives a lovely flavour to this pudding . 
I use to make it as a newly wed in the pressure cooker seperators. 
But since few yrs i make it in the oven and its  comes out perfect. 

560 ml of milk  
1/2 vanilla pod or 1 teasp vanilla essence
Grated rind of one lemon
4 eggs  …i have used 5 eggs , since the eggs were small.
125 mg sugar . Half will be used for caramelising and half for the custard . 

Vanilla beans..

Lemon rind from one lemon

Eggs … I used 5 eggs since they were very small. 




Preheat the oven to 180C . Put the tray in with 3/4 th water in it. 

Put the milk , vanilla pod and lemon rind in a saucepan and bring to a boil. 

Remove and strain it to remove the pod and rind. 

In another bowl, beat eggs , and half of the sugar  with a whisk or hand blender for 3 mts. 

Gradually pour the hot milk ,  into the egg mixture, stirring it constantly  . 

Add the vanilla essence now …in case u dont have the pod. 

Melt the remaining sugar on moderate heat, till it turns goldenbrown. Its hot so take care while handling it. 

Pour this at once into a big mould   or  6 small individual moulds. Turn it around to coat all the sides and base. 
Use a pair of tongs or wear mittens while doing so . It has to be done fast , before it thickens . 

Strain the custard mixture once again and pour into the moulds. Cover with foil . 

Place in the hot water bath ready in the oven roasting tray

Bake for 45 mts with upper and lower …both heaters or rods on . 

Allow it to cool . Place in fridge. 

Turn once chilled onto the serving plate.
