This is a delicious Latin American custard.

When I finally managed to make this recipe, the result was amazing, but I lost some Pyrex in the process. Keep physics in mind when you throw the milk/egg mixture into your hot pan--warm up the first and cool the latter! And add a teaspoon of vanilla for a great finish!
