Old-Fashioned Baked Custard
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 50 min.
This was far too buttery and greasy- a stick of butter was way too much and this came out very wet with grease sitting around the sides and top of the finished custard. I was sopping at it with a paper towel... really unappetizing. I've made successful baked custards before with no butter and won't be trying this recipe again.
This crustless pie is a favorite in our house! To simplify things I skip the blender and beat by hand. Tastes wonderful as is or with the addition of cinnamon. I make this simple dessert about twice a month. You can't go wrong with this old-fashioned custard.
I make custard all the time (Hubby's favorite), but like my Pumpkin pie custard, I zap it in the MICROWAVE. After preparing it I place in a 2 qt.baking dish and place it into a 3 qt. bkg.dish, add HOT water 1/2 way up sides and microwave for 9-12 minutes, testing to see if it's done with a knife.
I really enjoy this easy bake and clean up recipe. I made one change to the recipe I use a half cup of Graham Cracker crumbs instead of the flour, I add it at the very end blend it in then place into the pie plate(actually a caserole dish) and place in the oven. The graham cracker crust ends up on to hence the newly namedUpside Down Custard Pie
The flavor was not good.
I difinitely give this 5 stars. This was so easy and tasted great. The crunchy top was a nice touch.
