Eggless Caramel Custard Pudding

I absolutely love caramel in my desserts. I’m not a sugar junkie but caramel is an exception so I tend to add them in many of my baking recipes.

The name ‘Macaroons’ comes from Italian maccarone or maccherone meaning “paste” referring Want to know more about this recipe?
