I always thought my Mom had the best recipe which I learned, and then a friend suggest I try it with some Victorian Epicure spices and I was really surprised that it tasted so much better after adding the poudre douce. Try it for yourself!

Very good! I made this tonight but tripled the recipe, I omitted the Poudre Douce and added two 1-inch pieces of cinnamon bark, and freshly grated nutmeg. I used 8 cups milk and 1 cup whipping cream for a more creamier texture. I started the cooking on top of the oven to bring the milk/cream mixture to a light boil, and then I baked mine at 350 degrees on air-convection oven, and it took just over 1 hour to bake. It was very creamy when just removed from the oven, but seemed to firm up upon sitting for a while. We enjoyed this for dessert. Thanks for posting....Kittencal:)
