紅茶牛乳プリン - milk tea pudding

Devouring the last of the four puddings I made on Saturday night as I type this post :) Well as the weather is unfortunately getting warmer and warmer, I thought I might as well make jellies and puddings. Practising now so I can avoid the oven at all costs during the summer months :) I found this recipe on yahoo!グルメ a few months ago but never bothered to actually make it because I didn't want to wait for the it to set. I wanted to eat what I made immediately :)

I like tea, particularly Asian type teas (green tea, jasmine tea etc.) but I am not so much of a Western tea fan. Tea and fresh milk are a few of the staple foods in our household and I decided to make this.

When the pudding is just set, it has a soft pudding texture, however firms up (but is still soft) when in the fridge longer.

Hopefully summer doesn't come as soon!

紅茶牛乳プリン ~ milk tea pudding
adapted from this Japanese recipe

makes 4 small servings
  • 1 Tb gelatin powder
  • 3 Tb hot water
  • 2 tea bags
    (I used 4 Lipton black tea bags for a darker colour and more intense flavour)
  • 400 mL milk
  • 4 Tb sugar
  • whipped cream to serve


1. Dissolve the gelatin powder in 3 Tb of hot water. Make sure all the gelatin is dissolved and there are no lumps. Leave to set.

2. Remove all tags from the tea bags and place them in a small saucepan with the milk.

3. Heat milk and sugar on the lowest heat, until milk is hot but not boiling. Stir and remove tea bags.

4. When tea is hot, place the piece of set gelatin and stir to dissolve. Turn off heat.

5. Divide the mixture into 4 small cups or ramekins. Chill in the refrigerator until set.

Serve with a dollop of whipped cream for more taste.

high tea @ hotel de grub (my house)

Bought a small box of UHT cream for the scones a few weeks ago, but never got to make them because I was staying up really late and couldn't be bothered baking them for breakfast. Well opened the cream on Friday and got to use it before it goes off so I told my mum I was gonna make scones in the afternoon :)

Returned home from the market and started surfing the net. My mum walks past the room and was like "Aren't you making scones? I'm waiting for them." Hahaha totally forgot about it...and thus after my dad's "put more sultanas and fruit in them" these extremely fruity scones were born. Modified Gary's scones recipe again. LOVE the recipe ^^

P.S to Lalarhs, I'm waiting for you to run to my house :)

Made these jellies before I went to do homework last night. Like I assumed the weather would be "hot" in the afternoon since it was hot on Friday and Saturday. Only to find out it's all windy and rainy today. Oh well, it's not even cold (for me that is)

But last night's wind was shocking. The windows were shaking and I felt the house shake. It was scary. And Thangstahh was watching Batman all night...and the movie never seemed to end...Oh well, got to pester my "fan tong" friend before I gave in to my baggy eyes XD

Enjoy the cookies you guys :)
