Tofu Pudding With Salted Gula Melaka Caramel – 豆腐椰糖布丁

Our Tofu Pudding is a humble morsel of heaven which features not just any ordinary salted caramel, but Salted Gula Melaka Caramel – which really shines against the subtle creamy flavour of the tofu!

To make our silky pudding, we blend milk, thickened cream, collagen-based gelatin, and icing sugar with tofu, then let the strained mix set in the fridge.  We’ve specially chosen the Steamed version of the Vitasoy Organic Sprouted Tofu for a smoother, luscious texture thanks to its Nigiri-seawater extracts. We also love the fact that it has 25% more calcium than other tofu products.  The low calorie count is perfect for offsetting the decadence of the dish, and a sprouted product will aid in digestion and nutrient uptake.

Gula Melaka, which we use as a key ingredient for our own relish, is the Malay term for coconut or palm sugar.  It yields a taste and consistency quite like brown sugar but stands out with its own unique character. For our sauce, we combine the sweet chunks of Gula Melaka and natural unsalted butter, whisk in some coconut milk, add a twist of pandan leaf and a sprinkle of salt to achieve that satisfying creaminess and sweet aroma.  

Drizzle generously over the pudding when it’s ready, kick back and enjoy your guilt-free treat – it’s ‘living la vida local’ with no regrets!
