    Jen T's Note:

    A quick easy egg custard for times when comfort food is needed. **Note.....This recipe is for a 700wt microwave. For other wattage ovens check your book that came with it for guidelines. For my new Panasonic 1200wt oven which has 1-10 power levels, I heat milk on Hi (100%power) for the 3mins then for cooking I use P3 (30% power)and cook at this level for 15mins, then leave to stand covered for 5mins. As all ovens are different this is a guide only. Experiments may be needed to get the best result.

      All I have to say is yum - I'm too busy trying not to eat it all in one sitting. I made six individual custard cups, so cut down the cooking time a little. It was very good - tastes just like the custard my mom used to make. Thanks for sharing such an easy recipe. Just made this again for about the fifth time. I feel so bad for the few people who had trouble with this. I think maybe they cooked at too high a temperature. They are missing out on an easy to make, awesome custard. I pour this into six custard cups after heating the milk initially and mixing with the egg and sugar. I cook 4 minutes on medium, stir and cook for an additional 3 1/2 to 4 minutes on medium. Good luck to all of you who try this and happy eating.

      The flavor was great but like others it was watery. I wonder if using 2% milk instead of whole milk or half and half makes a difference. I will try it again with a fattier milk and let you know.

      This is exactly what it is billed 'a quick easy egg custard'! Hit the spot when I was looking for some soft comfort food after dental work. This was plenty sweet for me although I admit my 1/4 cup was heaping. I need to tweak a bit more for my 1000 watt microwave - it was a bit watery (but I ate it all). I did the milk at 3:20 full power, the custard at 20 minutes 30% power - stirred at 6 minutes, and 15 minutes - more like whisked with a fork. Its not silky smooth like a traditional custard but the taste is all there. Perfect for a quick custard fix!! Thanks!!!
