Cake caramel pudding
My first trial was a kind of ok then the next time adjusted the recipe in accordance with my taste buds and made the perfect ----- Cake caramel pudding----- two equal layers of cake n caramel,
There are actually few points to be noted ------ be patient
------ allow the dessert to set preferably overnight then flip them over to have the perfect dessert
------ you can play with the colors for sponge, make it into marble cake or rainbow cake
------- just divide the batters and add colors to it
------- these can be steamed too, gives almost the same taste n texture(( always cover them tight before steaming)

Proceed with the following steps:
Add the sugar and 1 tbsp water in pan, melt in low heat until sugar starts to caramelises to golden brown colour, now add 1 tbsp of hot water (( never add cold water as it tends to crystalize))
Stir well and pour into the prepared pan and spread well, the caramel should turn solid immediately
Heat the milk and add the sugar, stir until the sugar dissolves completely,
Meanwhile beat the eggs for 30 seconds now while whisking the milk slowly add the milk (( never add the milk wholely at a time the heat from the milk will cook the eggs,, add slowly to steady the temp ))
Now add vanilla, condensed milk n milk powder,, mix well
Slowly strain the mixture through the sieve to collect the air bubbles
Allow the mixture to sit for a while and spoon out the remaining buble if there is bubble then the pudding will be full of holes
Now spoon out the pudding mixture carefully over the caramel , don't pour hastily it might disturb the caramel
Separate the eggs
In a clean bowl whisk the egg whites half the sugar till it forms stiff peaks.
In another bowl beat the egg yolk and remaining till they turn creamy n pale to it add melted butter, vanilla essence, milk, mix them well add the flour part by part and mix thoroughly.
Now add 1/3 rd egg whites and incorporate it to the batter well, then fold in the rest of the egg whites gently otherwise the cake will lose the sponginess,
If you need to add color divide the batter and add colors to it
Now add dollops of cake batter to the prepared pudding mixture, and smoothen the cake batter
Prepare a water bath----- take a little larger pan that would fit the cake pan .
