"Totally not set, flavor out at the edge good, but did not cook. I would recommend upping the amount of egg yolks. I cooked for >15 minutes past cook time"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 14, 2012

"Haven't eaten yet, but took way too long to cook and I don't know if it will be set enough to eat. I would try again but add more egg yolks to ensure custard forms, will review when we try it later tonight"
