Baked Custard with Cinnamon

Mother used to make this comforting baked custard when I was growing up on the farm. It was wonderful after a chilly evening of doing chores. Now I fix it for my husband and four sons. —Mary Kay Morris, Cokato, MN

    This is wonderful. I saw the other comment about adding another egg. I tried this and it made it much creamier. Loved it!!!

    I've made this many times, so easy and a wonderful comfort food. To make it a bit richer I add an extra egg and a tsp of vanilla.....delicious!!
