Vanilla Custard Cups (Baked)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Graciebonica

A recipe from TOH, this makes two servings of creamy, silken-textured custard with a delicate flavor. It is very simple to prepare, and the brown sugar gives just a hint of caramel. This recipe is formulated for 2 servings; cooking time would need to be increased for larger amounts.

This had great flavor, and we liked the brown sugar in it (never had it that way before), but the custard was a bit thin and watery. I think two eggs would be better, so it would set up firmer. Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
