READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Sharon123

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!
