"Very easy to follow and was very good... I added some nutmeg to the top before serving it was great. I also topped it with fresh homemade whipped cream yummy"

"Baked this last night and let it cool overnight in the fridge. Hubs enjoyed every bite (I baked in small ramekins) a few minutes after settling in post day surgery. Like roblaura he said the added vanilla made this custard extra special. Thanks for sharing your recipe."

"Great recipe tastes like my Mama's. I like the extra vanilla. I cooked it in small ramekins for individual servings. Tastes great warm or cold."
