  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) water

  • 1 can (12 oz/370 mL) 2% evaporated milk
  • 4   eggs
  • 1   Double-Strength Vanilla


  1. For caramel mixture, combine sugar and water in Classic Batter Bowl; whisk using Stainless Whisk. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 4-8 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture turns golden brown, stirring after each 2-minute interval. Divide caramel mixture evenly among six (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowls
