Microwaved Custard Pudding in a Silicone Steamer

Microwaved Custard Pudding in a Silicone Steamer

You can make a soft pudding in a small silicone steamer!
It's easy and can be made with ingredients you already on hand.


150 ml
1 1/2 tablespoons
★Vanilla essence (optional)
a little
Sugar (for the caramel)
2 tablespoons
Water (for the caramel)
1 teaspoon
Water (to add to the caramel)
1 teaspoon


1. Place the water and sugar for the caramel into the steamer. Microwave uncovered at 500 W for 1 minute 50 seconds. When it becomes light brown, add the additional water and microwave for another 30 seconds.
2. # If the caramel starts to smoke, stop heating it. Even if you don't add the additional water, when it turns a caramel color, it's fine. Be careful not to burn it.
3. Add the ★ ingredients to a bowl and mix together to make the pudding mixture.
4. Pour Step 3 into Step 1, cover with a lid, and microwave for 2 minutes 20 seconds at 500 W. Let it sit while still covered (to steam) and it's done Let cool and enjoy.
5. If it cooks for too long it will become sour and will taste off. It's okay if it's a little bit raw before letting it steam, as it'll cook in residual heat.
6. If you want a thicker pudding, decrease the milk to 130 ml! It will come out different depending on the size of the egg.
