Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is a lighter version of classic creme caramel. It uses reduced fat ingredients, but still has a satisfying rich flavor. Cook time includes chilling.

This was so good and so easy! I was looking for a version of this recipe that confirmed to me that it could be made low fat and this proved that it could! I used skim milk and 2 whole eggs and 3 egg whites and it came out absolutely delicious. Not one person was able to tell it was a lower fat version. My mom even said it was the best baked custard she had ever had. I did however have to bake it about 10 minutes longer, but other than that everything was perfect! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
