This custard is a dream! I cut the recipe in half cause I only had 2 cups of milk. It still took about the same amount of time to cook, but it came out great--so silky and cozy...
Thank you for taking the time to share this wonderful recipe. Simple
Dear movnspeechGA If you dont like the way someone who is kind enough to take the time to post a recipe, then maybe you should stay off the sites. You are so rude !!!!!! #lifeisshorthekind #somepeoplehavenoclass #ihavenotoleranceforbullies
I made this custard because a neighbor of mine recently came home to hospice care and she requested custard. This one is the real deal. Easy to make! I didn't have enough whole milk to make it so I substituted 1/4 cup half and half for every 3/4 cup of 2 percent milk that I had to use. I made a triple batch. Its simple flavor coupled with the yumminess of cinnamon and/or nutmeg on top with a dollop or cream did it for me. I'm swooning with delight. I'll be making this more often!
This is exactly the way my mother and grandmother made baked egg custard - and that stretches back over a hundred years! One time I mistakenly sprinkled the top with ground cinnamon and that was very good, too; in fact, I now use cinnamon on purpose sometimes.
I loved the typo in this recipe. I should make it for a good laugh! (This is a very soft custard and will giggle ???even after chilling.) Sounds like a great recipe!
I had 6 eggs (hated to put just 2 back in the carton) no vanilla, but did have almond and upped the sugar to 3/4 c. It is soooo good. Even tho I used more sugar, it still is not too sweet. I could almost use this as a eggnog base! (I did have some left over and warmed it up and tried it that way... As Rachel Ray would say- YUM OH!)
