Steps to prepare caramel custard

  • Add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tbsp water to a heavy bottom pan. Sugar will begin to caramalize when its cooked on low flame. It should look golden brown.
  • Immediately pour the sugar mixture in 4 separate ramekins. Make sure to do it quickly as the mixture begins to solidify. 
  • In another pan, heat 1 1/2 cup milk with 1/3 cup sugar & 1/2 tsp vanilla essence. Once sugar is dissolved, take it off the flame and cool it.
  • In the mean time, whisk 3 eggs. Once the milk is cooled, gradually add the milk to whisked eggs while continuously stirring to avoid any lumps. Sieve the mixture & pour it in 4 ramekins prepared earlier with caramel. 
  • Prepare a water bath and place them in a preheated oven at 150 C for 45 mins. After 45 mins, remove the ramekins & let it cool down and then put them in refrigerator till serving. 
  • For serving, run a knife along the edges of the ramekins and invert the bowl onto the plate. If the custard doesn’t come out, give it a slight taps on the bottom to loosen it. Serve & enjoy.


  • Make sure to immediately transfer the caramel to bowls. Let the milk + sugar mixture come to room temperature before whisking in the eggs. 
  • Sieve the egg & milk mixture before adding it to bowls which will give a silky appearance to the custard.
