Recipe by CoffeeMom

This is a recipe from a collection of recipes by a Roman named Marcus Gavius Apicius of the 4th or 5th century. The ingredients are the same as in the original recipe but I have made the instructions compatible with a modern kitchen. If you want, you may add 1 tsp vanilla but it is not a part of the original recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk milk and honey together until completely blended.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs until frothy.
  3. Combine eggs and milk/honey mixture and blend well.
  4. Pour into an 11x7 in pan and put into a 300ºF oven. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted into the custard comes out clean.
  5. Enjoy!
