Baked Custard (Serves 6)
4 eggs slightly beaten
1/3 cup sugar (I use honey. Experiment and see how much you like. You can always drizzle more honey over the custard after it's baked if it's not sweet enough.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups warm milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Nutmeg as desired
Combine eggs, sugar and salt. Stir milk in gradually. Add vanilla. Pour into custard cups or quart casserole dish. Set in larger pyrex dish and surround with water. Bake at 325 degrees 30-40 minutes or until the tip of inserted knife comes out clean.
Eating this simple but delicious dish takes me back to my childhood.
