A Japanese Custard Pudding

A Japanese Custard Pudding

Purin is a flan-like cold custard dessert in Japan. The name “Purin” comes from “pudding”, but it is not the same thing as the gooey pudding in the U.S. It has a firmer texture similar to Mexican flan and also has caramel sauce on top. It is a very basic sweet -- silky, creamy, rich, and smooth -- that is served chilled and adored in Japan. Purin is a comfort dessert for Japanese people.

  • 3 tablespoons water (warm, divided)
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
