Nostalgic taste – Mum’s Japanese custard pudding

CIMG2310

This is my mum’s taste. When I was little, she made this for us when we had special occasions.
Now, when we visit their house, she will cook it for us for dessert.
Last few years, my niece wants to cook it with us. It is exactly same taste through 3 generations.

It’s such a nostalgic taste to me. Simple custard pudding.

This is all you need.
Egg, milk, sugar, vanilla.
My family normally use brawn sugar for all cooking, but mum only use white sugar for this pudding.
