      Whisk about one-fourth of the hot mixture gradually into the yolk mixture, add to remaining hot mixture, whisking constantly. Skim air bubbles from the top of the mixture. Pour mixture into an 8-inch square pan. Place into a 13 x 9-inch pan. Add hot water to larger pan to the depth of 1 inch.

    8. 8
      Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
