How to make Roscón de Reyes pudding

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 40 m
  • Elaboration 10 m
  • Cooking 30 m

We start making the liquid caramel and, for this, in a thick-bottomed saucepan, put the sugar together with four tablespoons of the water and place it on the fire, at medium temperature. We let the sugar cook slowly and thicken little by little. While the sugar caramelizes, we heat the rest of the water.

When the caramel has a golden hue, remove the saucepan from the heat and add a couple of tablespoons of the hot water. The caramel will sizzle, so be very careful not to burn yourself. Remove with a few rods and put the saucepan back on the fire.Add another couple of tablespoons of hot water, stir again and so on until incorporating all. We distribute the caramel between the aluminum molds and reserve.

We put all the ingredients of the pudding in the glass of a mixer and beat until obtaining a homogeneous mass. Fill the aluminum molds with the mixture and place them in a container suitable for the oven, about two or three centimeters deep. We pour water into the container in such a way that it reaches half the molds. We introduce the container in the pre-heated oven at 180 ºC and cook in a bain-marie for 20 minutes.

With what to accompany the Roscón de Reyes pudding

These Roscón de Reyes puddings are a delicious dessert that can be eaten both warm and cold and that the whole family will surely like. They combine very well with red fruits, since their acid flavor balances the sweetness of the main element, that is, the pudding.
