    evelyn/athens's Note:

    If you've never made homemade custard/pudding, you're going to be stunned at the difference in taste with store-bought. Once made, these delicious custards need to be refrigerated for atleast 3 hours before serving.

      This is a wonderful pudding/custard that we all enjoyed. I used intant de-caf coffee instead of the expresso powder but I don't think it made any difference in the taste. I cooked the custard in a a one-quart casserole dish (instead of individual custards) and cooked it for about one hour instead of the time stated in the recipe but it came out perfect. Next time I will try it with custard cups instead. Thanks Evelyn for posting this keeper custard recipe.
