Japanese Milk Pudding


Japanese Milk Pudding is a really popular dessert in Japan. This Japanese milk pudding recipe is very easy to make and requires very few ingredients. You can serve them as they are or top with fruit or berries or toasted nuts and syrup. Serve them straight from the fridge for a firmer more solid texture or leave to rest for 15 minutes for a softer pudding.

Place the ingredients in a large saucepan. Warm the pudding mixture over low heat on the stove but do not allow it to simmer or come to a boil. This should only take 1-2 minutes once the mixture begins to heat up. Once the sugar and gelatin is fully dissolved, remove the saucepan from the heat. Pour the pudding into small jars – I always save glass yogurt jars to use for my Japanese puddings.

Gonna use this as a dressing for some honey cake instead of eating it on it's own!

Really sweet I'd say this is more of a dessert than a normal milk pudding because of how sugary it taste.

Not bad but better to let it freeze in the freezer for an hour, will become more pudding like.

Would've given a 5 but mine was very liquidy, tasted good but wasn't pudding was more of a smoothie.

Its okay but I prefer more solid things like the cherry pastry tart, lots more flavor and depth to it than this one.
