      This was a very creamy custard. The only change was a bit less sugar and a bit more coffee. I served it with sweet hazelnut pastry so the bitterness in the custard balanced out the pastry. Made for ZWT 7. Thanks for posting.

      I am not giving a star rating since these turned out kind of chunky and not creamy BUT it was my first time making a custard this way and having a custard done in the oven so have nothing to compare it with so could just be the chef's fault LOL. The flavour is AWESOME so that would get a 5 star rating . made for Comfort Cafe recipe of the day
