Recipe For Caramel Pudding


  • Sugar - 1.5 cups (For Butterscotch pudding use brown sugar instead)
  • Milk - 2 cups (240 ml)
  • Hot water - 1 cup
  • Cold water - 1/2 cup
  • Gelatin - 2 tbsp
  • Egg Yolks - 6
  • Whipped Cream - 2 cups
  • Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp


  1. Soak the gelatin in half a cup of cold water for about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat a pan on medium flame and add the sugar to it.
  3. Heat till the sugar melts and caramelizes (turns light golden brown in color).
  4. Add the hot water to this and bring it to a boil.
  5. Add the milk to this and heat the mixture. (caramel milk)
  6. In the meantime, beat the egg yolks in a separate bowl.
  7. Add about half a cup of the caramel flavored milk to this egg yolks and mix well.
  8. Add this along with the vanilla essence to the remaining caramel milk mixture.
  9. Continue to mix on medium heat till it thickens up like a custard.
  10. Add the soaked gelatin to this and mix till the gelatin melts and blends with the custard mixture.
  11. Cool this mixture well before proceeding.
  12. Gently fold in the whipped cream with the custard.
  13. Transfer the mixture to a serving dish and refrigerate till the pudding sets (about 5 hours).
  14. Serve chilled with some whipped topping.


  • Making the pudding with white cane sugar yields caramel pudding and brown sugar yields butterscotch pudding. Both taste different but equally delicious.
  • Those who want to avoid using gelatin can use little cornstarch instead for setting the pudding.

          It seems delicious, but for an even simpler recipe why not try classic creme caramel? Not exactly Indian but popular in Mumbai at least. You only need eggs, milk and sugar, with some vanilla or vanilla essence: you need little cups to make it but you can use pretty much any kind, even coffee cups, as they are baked in a water bath.
         There is a lot of advice on the web how to make it.
