  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In iron skillet, over medium heat, cook and Stir the sugar until it is melted and caramel color.
  3. Divide the sugar into 8 ungreased 6-oz custard cups.
  4. Tilt to coat the bottom of the cups.
  5. With a wire whisk, beat eggs in large bowl; stir in the water, milk, vanilla and salt.
  6. Pour the egg mixture into custard cups.
  7. Place the filled cups in a large shallow pan filled with 1 inch of hot water.
  8. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted near centers comes out clean.

Absolutely wonderful! I tried to make them the other day, but couldn't get the sugar to melt. Tried for 20 minutes. Then last night used a different pan and it was done in 5. Very easy after that, but you have to swirl the sugar quickly in the ramekins! Texture was smooth, taste was great - will definitely be making often. Thanks Paula!! Made for Aus NZ Swap 37
