Time, heat and patience are all indispensable to make a perfect custard pudding. In addition to bake in a water bath method, steam method can also be used. But for us, the steam method will be more difficult to control the temperature. Although the time will be shortened, the pudding is easy to have bubble marks and the taste is not so smooth. Besides, the material of the container also is a key. Aluminium or stainless steel containers conduct heat faster, so it is also easy for puddings to have bubble marks. We think that using glass or ceramic containers is more suitable. Finally, remember to bake the pudding until it is cooked, otherwise it will taste fishy.

In the late 20th century, caramel pudding was a popular dessert menu in European restaurants. In Spanish-speaking countries and often in the United States, crème caramel is known as flan. This was originally a Spanish-language usage, but the dish is now best known in North America in a Latin American context. Elsewhere, including in Britain, a flan is a type of tart somewhat like a quiche.
