Had a craving for this and decided to whip it up one night because this recipe was so easy. It was delicious of course! Perfect too because we were going out of town the next day and I needed to use up some dairy. I made 5 custards in custard bowls and froze two because they were left over. I haven't thawed them out to try them yet so I will let you know how they came out when I do. Thanks! UPDATE 8/20/09: Tried the frozen custards today. I thawed them in the microwave using the defrost function for 5 minutes. Unfortunately they came out much much too soggy and were not good, so I would stay away from freezing them :)
I've made this a couple of times and it has turned out great and is so easy compared to most other custard recipes. I used some fat-free milk and some whole milk for the 3 cups and it worked out fine. My DH went back for seconds.
This custard is excellent! It was so easy to make. Like other people though, I had to cook it for about 10 min. more but, it came out perfect. I substituted cinnamon for the nutmeg because I don't care for nutmeg and I loved it. I loved the fact that it did not require stove top directions. Great recipe! Thanks!
OMG I am droling over the photos and will be making this as soon as I have the cream that I'll need. Will rate it soon ;-)
Absolutely wonderful. I actually baked a box yellow cake half way, then poured the custard over the cake and finished baking in the water bath. served like 10 people with it and was gone in 10 mins. loved by everyone. Thanks for the recipe.
dreamy, creamy deliciousness! Wasn't up to much fiddling but wanted a smooth comforting cuppa something - I'm taking lottsa NSAIDS for a bum knee. Cooked in indiviual 1 cup servings & had the first warm. Delicious & so soothing! Thank you Fairy Nuff for a lovely recipe I will use again!
I love baked custard but had never made it. This was yummy and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written using the vanialla extract and not the vanilla essence as that is what I had. Loved it.
Comfort food! Just the right amount of sweetness. Loved the nutmeg! Thanks!
