Sweetness for the sweetest of all!

The hubby doesn't have a sweet tooth! Definitely different from me! I love sugar...and I love chocolate. The hubby, prefers food...the filling kind of food. It can be simple, but has to be filling. Me?!?! I'd take chocolate instead...any day!
There are very few desserts that the hubby eats and enjoys...this is one of them,
Meet "Pudim de Leite Condensado", a very popular brazilian dessert.
It's super easy to make and I love to see the smile the hubby has on his face when I make this dessert just for him! It makes it totally worthwhile, even though I think chocolate would be so much better (smile)...

It takes simple, simple ingredients:

1 can sweetened condensed milk
measure in the same can some milk
4 eggs
and 3/4 C.Sugar to caramelize the pan!

1. Beat all the ingredients minus the sugar in blender...
2. In a round "bundt" pan melt the sugar over the stove top. Make sure you spread the caramel on the sides too!
3. Pour in the liquid... and bake for 40-45 minutes on a double broiler. It will look like this when it's done: (see below)
4. Let cool. Once it's cool, carefully (this is the trickiest part) turn it upside down on your serving platter. The "pudim" is soft, so if you're not careful it might break and that would just be too sad :)
The hubby likes his "pudim" cold, so I put it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving...
So, that's the hubby's favorite dessert and I love spoiling him, so I make this quite often! After all, he deserves to be spoiled, he's the sweetest hubby ever...yes, I'm in love :)

My husband is the same way, but the children take after me. We love our desserts!
We call that "flan", and I have been meaning to try and make it homemade! Yours looks delicious!

What temperature should it be bakes at? I tried it tonight at 350 and it hasn't set up after over an hour!

Angel, it is kind of soft and a little on the runny side, it doesn't get hard, hard. Did you do it on the double broiler?!?! Hope it worked out! By the way, the book made it to my sister's! THANKS a million!
