What Is Japanese Pudding?

Japanese pudding would be called custard pudding, flan or crème caramel in the West. It is eaten all over the world, however, it has originated from France or Spain. It is very similar to a crème brûlée except that the caramel is soft, rather than burnt. It is plain custard cream with a caramel sauce on top.
It can be cooked in the oven or in a bain-marie.
