I was looking for an easy custard microwave recipe, and I found it. It's too hot to turn on the oven, and this recipe is the perfect alternative, plus it's done in less than half the time of regular baked custard! I made the recipe as written, except I subbed Torani French Vanilla Sugar Free syrup for the sugar. I made the mistake of not beating the eggs thoroughly enough so the consistency wasn't perfectly smooth. That was my fault, and next time I will beat them better and I'm sure it will be entirely lump free. Also, I used non-fat milk and it came out great. A healthy treat!
