1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper

- Add the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper to the bowl and whisk until smooth using a hand blender or hand whisk. Let the mixture rest for about 10 minutes.
- Grease each section of the muffin or cupcake tray with Sunflower oil or any oil that you opt to use.
- Place the muffin or cupcake tray in the preheated oven to heat the oil.
- Remove the tray from the oven. Be extra careful as it will be extremely hot.
- Pour the batter evenly in each section, halfway. Use a spoon to avoid drips but you need to work as quickly as possible.
- Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden and crispy.
- Do not remove the puddings from the oven too early. Otherwise, they won’t be crispy and they might shrink.
