Growing up Pudim de leite moça (as we called it then, named after the brand of condensed milk) was one of my favorite desserts and now I make it quite often myself. This dessert can be found at almost every Angolan party/special occasion.
You can find many different variations througout the Lusophone countries, South-America and the Caribbean. It is also quite similar to flan.
It’s super easy to make & delicious!!
I like to make it the day before or early in the morning cause I like it cooled in the fridge for at least a few hours.
What you need:
- 1 can condensed milk (397g)
- 3 eggs
- 6 Tbsp Desiccated Coconut (optional)
- 3 Tsp vanilla extract
- Whole milk (around 610ml) measured out of the condensed milk can 2x
- 150g Sugar (for the caramel)
- Baking tin
- Deep/wide fit cooking pot with a lid
- Aluminium foil
Beat the 3 eggs separately
Pour the condensend milk in a bowl, add the whole milk, mix well and then add the beaten egg and lastly add the desiccated coconut & vanilla extract.
Once everything is mixed well pour it in your tin, cover it with foil and put it in the pot, cover with lid, and set the stove to a low setting. Let it cook on a low setting for 45min-1hour.
