SALTED CARAMEL PUDDINGS
Makes 4-8 (depending on size of ramekins)
For Salted Caramel:
1 cup (200 g) Sugar
½ cup (120 ml) of heavy cream or whipping cream, warmed
¼ tsp (1.25 ml) fleur de sel sea salt
2 tbsp (30 g) butter
½ tsp (2.5 ml) vanilla
5 egg yolks
1/3 cup (35 g) cornstarch (cornflour)
2 cups (475 ml) milk
1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
1 vanilla bean
2 tbsp (30 g) unsalted butter
1 cup (240 ml) heavy Cream
1 tbsp (6 g) powdered sugar
½ tsp (5 ml) vanilla
In a large sauce pot combine the sugar and heat on medium high swirling the sugar until it turns a deep amber and is completely dissolved. This will take 7-10 mins. DO NOT WALK AWAY! It will burn very quickly if not careful and must be swirled in order to prevent burning.
Once caramel appears, add ½ cup of warmed heavy cream, TURN OFF FLAME. Allow for boiling to settle, and then whisk to combine. Add ¼ tsp Fleur de Sel salt and 2 tbsp of butter. Whisk until smooth and transfer to a Pyrex pitcher to cool.
Then in a large heat safe mixing bowl, add egg yolks and cornstarch, whisk until a smooth paste forms and set aside.
In a large sauce pot add milk, cream and vanilla bean paste scraped from bean, and the bean itself. Simmer until foamy.
Drain cream mixture through a sieve into a large heat safe container, to catch bits of vanilla pod.
Then slowly pour a small amount of the hot cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture and whish to temper the eggs and prevent them from scrambling, continue to add the rest of the cream mixture whisking all the while until fully combined.
Transfer this mixture into a cleaned out pot and heat on medium high, whisking all the while until thickened to a light pudding consistency but is still pourable. This will happen quickly as soon as it stats to thicken so don’t walk away!
Remove from the heat (since it will continue to thicken if left on the hot burner)
Add 2 tbsp (30 g) of butter and whisk until smooth. Add the caramel and whisk until smooth.
Pour into heat safe ramekins, leave uncovered. And refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Top puddings with a sprinkle of fleur de sel, a dollop of homemade whipped cream and toffee bits.
