Japanese Caramel Custard (Purin : プリン)

Japanese Caramel Custard (Purin)

In the world of desserts, many cultures share similar concepts; they are just called differently. Caramel custard is one of them; it’s called Crème au Caramel in French, Flan in Spanish or Purin in Japanese. Regardless of the name, the basic elements remain the same; eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla are the reasons for the deliciousness. Whether it’s baked or no-bake, it’s still made its way to my comfort food list. I’d never tried a no-bake version until one day my lovely Japanese friend, Midori, introduced no-bake Purin to me.
