🍮 Recipe - Caramel Egg Custard


Make the caramel


Ingredients:
  1. 1 cup of sugar
  2. 1/4 cup of water
Directions:
  1. Heat the sugar and water in a small pot
  2. In medium heat, stir and melt sugar to dissolve the sugar
  3. Once syrup boils, reduce to low heat and let it simmer
  4. Once it starts to turn golden brown, turn off the heat, as the caramel could burn quickly
  5. If the sugar turns into crystals, you can add more water and just start over

  2. Mix eggs and vanilla into the milk

Put it all together


Things to have:
  1. Individual ramekins or baking tray(s) - to put your custard

🍨 Recipe - Homemade Yogurt

Ingredients:
  1. Milk powder
  2. Water (around 4-5 cups? up to you)
  3. 1 small plain yogurt (from the shop)
Directions:
  1. Mix milk powder and water (I prefer a thicker yogurt, so I add a bit more milk powder)
  2. Heat the milk until it just starts to boil, and turn off the heat
  3. Wait until the milk cools down a bit (warm to the touch), then mix in the yogurt
  4. Divide the milk-yougurt into glass containers (that has lid) - sieve the mixture when pouring in to remove lumps
  5. Place the closed containers in a warm oven, and cover them with a warm cloth
  6. normally, I will turn on the oven (and put the cloth inside) for a little while, then switch the oven off once I am ready to place the yougrt into the oven
  7. Leave it for around 8 hours, and put in the fridge when it is done (I usually make yogurt at night, and leave it overnight)
