Then, take the baking dish and spray some oil on it so that it becomes smooth.
Now take a bowl and add all the pudding ingredients in it.
Then, with the help of an electric mixer, beat all the ingredients well.
You have to beat the ingredients until they become soft and smooth.
Put the pudding mixture in the baking sheet and spread it with the help of a spatula.
Then, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the pudding mixture for around half an hour.
Meanwhile, put the praline topping ingredients in a bowl and mix them well with each other.
Take out the pudding from the oven and sprinkle the praline topping.

When the pudding becomes slightly puffed, take the baking sheet out of the oven and place it aside so that it may cool down.
