4 Ingredient Pumpkin Pudding With Caramel Sauce | Easy Agar Agar Pudding


Rich, creamy & delicious pumpkin pudding with caramel sauce…

Fall has arrived and with it, the pumpkin season. I went to the pumpkin patch close to my house & picked up a few pumpkins. For making the pumpkin, I’ve picked a small sugar pumpkin, it’s sweet & great for making pies, bread & dessert.

Sharing fall decor on my porch

This pudding is made with just 4 simple ingredients. As a thickening agent for puddings, I always use agar-agar. Agar-Agar is 100% vegetarian, it’s actually a seaweed & a great vegetarian substitute for gelatin. I use agar-agar strands, have to be dissolved in water & then add to the pudding mixture.

I’ve also added caramel sauce as the bottom layer, this has enhanced the taste of this pudding greatly.

Make this pudding & let’s welcome Fall!
