Kogashi (Caramelised) pudding
Available at:Family Mart
Price:200 yen (Tax incl.)
Sale date:August 23, 2016
This cake was baked in a simple aluminum tray (6.5cm width × 5cm height). Family Mart uses this aluminum tray to bake the pudding because aluminum is a good thermal conductor. It helps make the pudding very smooth.
Look how the surface of the pudding is beautifully caramelized. It`s so inviting. Now let’s begin tasting it! This is not the light type of pudding which you often see sold nowadays. It is actually quite dense. It contains the richness of fresh eggs. It was so smooth that it melted in my mouth. I live for moments like this. The surface has been well broiled, so it tasted slightly roasted.
It was a simple pudding. You can never get tired of good old fashioned pudding. This pudding will satisfy the tastebuds of both young and old for sure!
