Bread or rice puddings require moderate heat for baking; batter or custard require a quick oven. Eggs for puddings are beaten enough when a spoonful can be taken up clear from the strings. Souffles require a quick oven. These should be made so as to be done the moment for serving, otherwise they will fall in and flatten.
