Simple Baked Custard

admin's picture
  Eggs 2 Large (3 Standard Eggs)
  Milk 1 Pint
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Nutmeg 1
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Flavoring To Taste

Beat the eggs, salt, and sugar enough to mix well.
Heat the milk.
Pour the hot (not boiling) milk on to the eggs and stir well.
Add flavouring to taste.
Pour into a greased pie dish.
When using the higher temperature, place the pie dish in a baking tin with hot water to come half way up the sides of the pie dish.
Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top of the custard.
Bake until set.
To test for setting, slip the blade of a knife into the custard half way between the centre and the side, and if it comes out clean with no custard sticking to it, the baking is finished.
The custard may not be quite done in the middle, but there will be sufficient heat in it to finish the cooking, and taking it out at this stage prevents overcooking and curdling.
