Taste Test – Pudim

Rita’s favorite desert growing up was Pudim which is the Brazilian version of a custard flan. I reviewed a couple of recipes on-line and gave it a try.

Make caramel by cooking sugar with a little bit of water

be careful it will burn easily

Pour caramel into a bunt pan and coat the sides

Prepare the custard filling

Pour into bunt pan on top of caramel and bake in a water bath

Turn upside down after cooling for several hours in the refrigerator

Nice custard flavor with a sweet caramel topping. 9 out of 10
