This recipe is from the Betty Crocker 1971 recipe card set. I posted it in response to a request for recipe on the boards. The recipe can easily be cut in half for six servings. Note to World Tour participants - I believe the ingredients are typical for the Canada region.

I have loved egg custard ever since I was a little girl. My mom used to make it for me all the time. This is a delicious recipe. I like to add just a touch more sugar to my custard. I will serve this custard with sliced strawberries sprinkled with sugar.

LOVED IT! PanNan, this is pure comfort food! I used freshly ground nutmeg and topped it with raspberries, but it was so good it wouldn't need a topping. Thank you for posting! Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
