Reviews for Soft Orange Custard
"I am an avid baker and this recipe didn't turn out very well. I had difficulty getting it to set and the texture was not good. In fact, I had made it for a dinner for my in-laws and ended up throwing it out and serving them leftover Christmas dainties."
"I used 1/4 cup pureed mango, 1/2 t of vanilla powder,1/2C sugar, 2% milk, and otherwise followed it. It has a great flavor and color. FYI, one mango will give you about 3/4C puree, so use the rest in a smoothie!:)"
"I had to change the recipe for gluten free and diabetic, so I replaced the flour with sweet rice flour and also used Splenda, and I liked the recipe. I love custard and I thought this was wonderful and I will make it again. I should make a regular recipe so that I can compare it to my revision."
"can this be made in another dish rather than ramekins which I do not have?"
"Mmmmmm...This was great! I loved the citrusy taste, and I don't usally enjoy that. Very good. I will definity make it again."
