If you are looking for a simple, comfort-food type of dessert to finish off a meal, Baked Custard is a great option.

It is one of the few desserts that Hubby actually likes and has been known to beg for. I usually don’t mind, because it is so easy to make.

So without further ado…

Baked Custard Ingredients

Beat eggs until combined but not foamy, mix in sugar, flour, vanilla and milk.

Pour custard into cups.

Optional - top with cinnamon before baking.

You know the custard is done baking when a knife inserted comes out clean.

 

Baked Custard

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

1/3 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Beat eggs until well combined but not foamy. Add in remaining ingredients and mix well. Using an 8×8 glass baking pan, place in four custard cups (or ramekins or small oven-safe bowls). Pour boiling water into pan until it is standing about 1 inch.

Pour batter into custard cups and then carefully place pan in an oven preheated to 325 degrees. Bake about 35-40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of a custard cup comes out clean.

We like to sprinkle cinnamon on top of the custard just before baking. So good and so simple!

Enjoy!

Happy Entertaining!
