  1. Sir
    I would like to know whether we need to keep in water while baking. Why? Can we use silicon moulds.

    1. Custards & puddings require milder heat source than the direct heat of the oven. In short water bath insulates custards from direct heat of the oven. This helps to avoid cracking, overcooking & curdling of custard. Try using aluminum moulds because they will help in retaining shape, while silicon mould may be tricky while remoulding the custard.
