This was a quick & easy week-night dessert! I scaled the recipe in half (used 2 yolks), sprinkled with cinnamon/nutmeg before baking and served with vanilla ice cream. I found that the upper layer of bread was drying out while the lower level was still uncooked - so I did some "flipping" to compensate for this. Thanx Tearanii!

This was the best custard I've ever had. Made it for breakfast this morning and everyone raved about it. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top of the powdered sugar, and it really enhanced the flavor. Will definately be making this again!
