We’re continuing the 12 days of desserts! Day 2 is one of my favorites! Pudim!
The Brazilian pudim is often mistaken for the Hispanic Flan, but it has a softer consistency and less vanilla in it, which makes a huge difference!
Here is the recipe of this very easy Brazilian Christmas dessert, which melts in your mouth and will be the talk of your next holiday party!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
1 cup and 1/2 cup sugar
6 large eggs
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 13 oz cans evaporated or regular milk (in Brazil, we use regular milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. You will need a baking pan to put it in or small ones.
Pour 1 cup of sugar in warm pan over medium heat. Constantly stir sugar until is browns and becomes caramel. Quickly pour approximately 2-3 tablespoons of caramel in the pan, tilting it to swirl the caramel around the sides. Reheat caramel if it starts to harden.
In a mixer or with a whisk, blend the eggs together. Mix in the 2 milk types then slowly mix in the 1/2 cup of sugar, then the vanilla. Blend smooth after each ingredient is added.
Pour custard into caramel lined baking pan. Place pan in a large glass or ceramic baking dish and fill with about 1-2 inches of hot water.
Bake for 45 minutes in the water bath and check with a knife just to the side of the center. If knife comes out clean, it’s ready.
Remove and let cool. Let baking pan cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Invert the baking pan onto a large plate, the caramel sauce will flow over the custard.
I usually make it and place by other desserts to stand out! This is a picture of the one I made last year!
I can’t wait to hear what you think about and more importantly, see if you will be adding it to your Christmas dessert list!
