DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Lightly grease a 1 quart baking dish or 4 ramekins.
  • Fill a 9x13 pan (or any shallow pan large enough to hold the baking dish) with 1 inch of hot water and set it in the oven.
  • **To caramelize the sugar: Melt the sugar in a heavy bottomed skillet without stirring. Swirl the sugar in the pan as it melts till caramel colored.
  • Pour about 1 tablespoons caramelized sugar into each ramekin, or all into baking dish and quickly swirl around to coat bottom and partly up sides.
  • The caramel will harden, but the custard will soften it as it bakes.
  • Beat the eggs together, then add the sugar and salt.
  • Slowly stir in the hot milk, stirring constantly.
  • Add the vanilla and coconut, if using.
  • Strain into the baking dish (if desired).
  • I usually just pour it all inches.
  • Sprinkle the top with nutmeg.
  • Put into the pan with hot water.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes, until a knife comes out clean.
