Caramel Custard 
8th-Aug-2010 08:07 am
Caramel pudding is one of my favorite desserts, but it's one of those things I'm afraid of trying to make at home. It's like the holy grail of sweet silk to me and I'm always on the hunt for bigger and better ones to slice through with my spoon.

So imagine my excitement when I found that Australia's Breadtalk spinoff, Breadtop sold them.

This tiny cup cost AUD$2.50. For the same price, I would've got a cup triple the size at Singapore's Tampopo Deli. Nonetheless, beggars can't be choosers, so I tucked in.

Pushing my little plastic spoon through the custard top, the liquid caramel squirted out and was a lot runnier than I expected. The custard itself was smooth, but certainly not the silkiest out there.

Jason looked over, while I was reading this, and went "Oooooo... custard!" I said, "Caramel," and he started salivating.

I'm seeing a creme brulee without the fire. :)
