  • Place ramekins into a shallow baking pan for easier handling; preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Beat eggs, salt & remaining sugar in a large bowl with mixer at low speed until lemon coloured; gradually beat in milk & vanilla extract.
  • Divide the custard mixture among the ramekins; pour HOT water into pan within 1 inch of top of cups.
  • Bake for 1 hour until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Remove ramekins from Baking pan & cool on wire rack; refrigerate.
  • To serve, loosen the custard from the cups with the tip of a sharp knife; invert onto a dessert dish, letting the syrup run down onto the side of the dish.
