←What’s this in your country? Pudding? Custard? Cream caramel? Flan? These are all very similar and made of almost the same ingredients. In japan, we call it “Purin”. I have Probably eaten more Purin than cookies in my life! I going to show you my mum’s Purin which is like brûlée style(caramelized on top).

Put the bowl into microwave, and heat for 1’30”min (500w).
Remove the bowl from the microwave, and stir a little to dissolve the sugar.
Add egg yolks, vanilla extract, and Grand Marnier.
Stir well using a whisk.
Sieve the egg mixture using tea strainer, and pour into a muffin pan*.
Fill each cup with the egg mixture to just below the top.
