Quick & easy baked custard

9 Mar


The Hungry Mum household is a little bit addicted to custard. The Hungry Dad believes it should be included in the food pyramid and Misses 4 and 6 insist upon it at dessert time.
This baked custard is so speedy and healthy. It can be prepared in an ad break and is perfect for those times when you have a glut of milk about to go off. Simply beat together two large eggs or three small eggs with a tablespoon of sugar, a big dollop of golden syrup and two cups of milk. Whisk until all combined then pour into 4 oven-proof tea cups or ramekins. Place into a large, deep metal tray and add enough boiling water to come halfway up the side of the ramekins. Sprinkle nutmeg over the top and carefully place in a 160C oven for 30 mins. Remove, cool on bench for 10 mins then place in fridge for a few hours. Serve cold.
