250ml milk
3 tbsp. sugar

5. Cover the pan and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low and cook for 10 min.  Stop the heat (do not open the lid) and steam for 10 min. with the remaining heat.

6. If you need caramel, you can put it on top then put it in the fridge until cold.

Note: If you want to slip out the pudding, grease the cups with oil or butter.

Caramel recipe:  Mix 2 tbsp. sugar and 2 tbsp. water in a saucepan by tilting the pan.  Simmer until the sauce is browned.  (Do not mix with a spoon or the sugar will recrystallize.)  Add 1 tbsp. water to stop hardening.
