    Sharon123's Note:

    Easy to make,easier to enjoy! This custard is done when it appears set but still jiggles slightly. The custard will firm up as it cools. Bet you can't just eat a little!

      Oh this is absolutely DIVINE!! This may serve 6 in a normal household but in this custard loving house it served two. Of course I doubled the vanilla (I usually do). I baked this in a single casserole dish and it only took 30 minutes. This custard is silky smooth and has a wonderful flavour. It beats those packet mix ones hands down!

      The name says it all! Comfort food at it's best! My grandmother made this all the time, and even used it for the best custard pie I have ever had. My mother used to make it for us when we were sick. Why I haven't made it for years, I don't know, but now that I remember how easy it is, I will be making it often. Thanks for the memory jog! I did add more than a dash of nutmeg (almost a teaspoon) because I love nutmeg. I did the casserole method.

      I made this for my hubby. It had a good flavor, but it came out as more of a "scrambled egg" consistency, whereas we expected more of a "custard". He did not like it. I, on the other hand, ate quite a bit (and went over my calorie limit on my diet, lol). It was unlike the custard that we are used to. Im pretty sure I followed the directions thoroughly, but im not going to rate it due to the fact that I probably did do something wrong. Sorry...
