A yummy desert!

My aunt came visiting yesterday. While catching up with the family gossip, we swapped some recipes. This is a quick and yummy one that i tried as soon as she left. It is a delicious version of the lovely caramel custard. My husband loved it and so did Ira. 

Coffee Caramel Pudding

250 ml milk
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tbsp instant coffee
1 tsp vanilla essence

Mix the milk and sugar and heat till the sugar dissolves. Cool. 
Whip the eggs and coffee till they froth. Add to the cooled milk and sugar mix. Add the vanilla and mix well.
In a decorative steel bowl, mix 1 teaspoonful of sugar with 1 teaspoonful water. Heat till the sugar is caramelized and coats the bottom of the bowl evenly. Pour the milk and eggs mix over the caramel carefully. Do not stir. Pressure cook for 3 whistles. Store in the fridge till you are ready to eat. Invert the pudding bowl on a serving place so the lovely caramel topping would be visible. Cut into wedges and serve. 

I did not obviously remember to click a photograph...i was just busy eating. :)
