Baked Egg Custard

Ingredients
2 eggs
450ml semi skimmed milk
30g sugar (you can substitute part or all if this with xylitol if you are sugar conscious)
a few drops of natural vanilla extract
about half a teaspoon of ground nutmeg

Method
  • Heat the milk, sugar and vanilla extract until hot but not boiling
  • Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a separate bowl
  • Add the hot milk and sugar mixture to the egg and mix well
  • Stir through some of the ground nutmeg and pour into an oven proof dish
  • Sprinkle the rest of the nutmeg over the top
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 45 - 50 mins (timing based on a fan oven - may take longer in a standard oven)

I actually prefer to let it cool and then refrigerate and eat it cold, just on it's own, but many people enjoy this as a hot dish, with stewed fruit for example. Pin It Now!
