Tips to Remember When Making A Baked Pudding

A baked pudding is a type of dessert that is cooked in an oven. The science and art of baking are key to making a delicious, moist and fluffy pudding. Here are some helpful tips for you to remember when making your own!

1) Use the right pan:

The most important thing to remember when cooking with an oven is to use the right pan size. Using too big or too small will result in a dry, flaky mess. A good rule of thumb would be 6-8 cups of pudding per 9×13-inch pan.

2) Use the right amount of baking soda:

The amount of baking powder and baking soda used in a baked pudding can be tricky. To avoid soggy puddings, use less than one tablespoon (0.5 teaspoons) for every cup of milk or cream that you have added to your mixture. If this is still too much, add more vanilla extract instead! Remember that it’s better to taste a little too much vanilla than have a soggy pudding.

3) Bake your pudding on the middle rack of the oven:

The temperature of your oven is important when baking puddings. Place it in the center, or on any rack with even heat distribution for best results with baked puddings.

When you are making a baked pudding, the first thing that is necessary for success is to preheat your oven. The next step will be to use measuring cups and ingredients which need to be at room temperature. Additionally, this recipe takes about 30 minutes or an hour of preparation time as well.
