Today we had a New Year party in the office so I baked this last night. The recipe is by Yani, the most famous sifu in MyR. A very special recipe as unlike typical caramel pudding, this one has a cake base. More surprisingly, it does not require you to bake the two layers separately and they nicely split themselves (but sticks well to each other) once baked.
Here is the recipe transalated into English.
(makes one 20cm round tin)
INGREDIENTS - CARAMEL:
1 + 2 tbsp Water
1. Mix sugar with 1 tbsp water.
Stir on stove until it turns golden & off fire.
Add in 2 tbsp water & stir until no lumpy.
Pour into a greased tin.
INGREDIENTS - PUDDING:
500ml Fresh Milk
4 EggsEssence Vanilla
2. Mix milk & sugar & stir on fire until sugar is melted.
In a separate bowl, beat lightly egg & EV (careful not to let the egg frothy otherwise the pudding texture will have holes).
Pour into the tin on top of the caramel.
INGREDIENTS - CAKE:
2 Eggs - split yolk/white
60g Castor Sugar
70g Flour20g Butter - melted
3. Beat egg whites with ½ of the sugar until stiff.
In a separate bowl beat egg yolk with the remaining ½ of the sugar until thick.
Mix the two together.
Fold in flour & lastly add in butter & mix well.
Pour onto pudding mixture.
4. Bake in a water bath 170C for 40 minutes.
Cool completely before turning it out from the tin.
Served chilled or at room temperature.
