Normally making of caramel custard is pretty complicated..It is baked in oven over a water bath. And setting it in fridge till it is completely cold then unmoulding it and serving. I am sure it will take atleast 6 to 8 hours from making to eating..But this recipe can be made in under 15 mins and you just need the chilling time alone..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 5 to 7 mins
Serves : 4 to 5


Eggs - 3 

Sugar - 5 tblspn powdered
Vanilla Essence - 2 tsp
Milk - 300 ml or  1 1/4 cup

For Caramel:

Sugar - 2 tblspn
Water - 1 tblspn + 1 tblspn


Start by making the caramel. Take 2 tblspn sugar and 1 tblspn water in a sauce pan. Heat it and swirl the pan to disolve the sugar. Once it is disolved, boil it till the colour changes to golden. Now take it off the heat and add in remaining 1 tblspn water and mix well. The caramel will become little watery now. Pour this into the bowl and set aside.

Now take eggs, powdered sugar, vanilla and whisk well. Add in milk and mix well. Sieve this.

Pour this into the custard bowl. Take caramel will settle in the bottom as it cooks..

Microwave it for 5 to 7 mins on high power. It may look giggly when u take out of the microwave, but it will set as it cools.  My pudding cooked in 7 mins.

Now take it out and set aside for 5 to 10 mins. Now chill this for 1 hour to 2 hours.

Invert it and cut and serve.


1) you can make this without the caramel part, it will give your plain vanilla custard.

2)When you pour the custard over the caramel, it may look like mixing. But later the caramel will settle in the bottom.

3)Each oven will vary, my oven took 7 mins. So keep an eye on it from 5 mins.

4)It may look giggly when u take out of the microwave, but it will set as it cools. 


Take all your ingredients

Start by making the caramel..Take sugar in a stainless 
sauce pan, so you can see the caramel colour well

add in little water

mix well while it is still off the heat

now put it on heat..dont mix using spoon..it will crystalize the sugar

just keep swirling the pan

it will slowly get golden

now you see it has changed quite a bit of colour

at this point take it off the heat and add the remaining water

mix well

now the caramel is a bit runny

take a microwave safe bowl

pour the caramel in

set aside
crack open 3 eggs in a bowl

add in powdered sugar..it is normal sugar which i powdered

add in vanilla

mix well

add in milk

whisk well

now you see bit of egg yolk

so strain the mix

this catches the yolk

now this is pure custard

pour this over the caramel

it may look the caramel has mixed with the custard

but if you see the bottom the caramel is still there

pop it in microwave and cook

let it cool down, then invert it to a plate

chill it for couple of hours..cube it

  16. I love custard but hate the trouble of the water bath, cooking the custard on stove top first, etc. Your recipe, video, and pictures, all make this recipe so easy to understand. You even took the time to convert the measurements. I am going to try this as soon as I am over having a cold virus. I am also going to pin this recipe and bookmark your site on my web browser. Thank you so much for your time and effort.
