Pudim de leite condensado

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

Pour the sugar in your baking tin and add a few tablespoons of water and let it melt on a low setting. Once caramelized, coat your entire tin with the caramel & put it to the side & let it cool.

In your pot add water halfway through and let it boil in the meantime put the ingredients together.

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.

Remove from stove and let it cool down completely. Once cooled, transfer to a plate and let it cool overnight in the fridge or at least a few hours.

Serve with a nice cup of tea or coffee.

(As you can see, you can make it different as you like)
