DIRECTIONS

  • In a small heavy bottomed saucepan, stir sugar and lime juice together until well mixed.
  • If the sugar is well coated this will stop the caramel from crystallising while you are making it.
  • With a wooden spoon, stir over medium heat until the sugar melts and turns a dark caramel colour.
  • Pour the hot caramel into an 8 inch fround flat baking dish and telt the dish backwards and forwards quickly so that the caramel coats the bottom evenly.
  • Combine egg yolks, vanilla, milk and condensed milk in a bowl.
  • Stir in the egg white and mix until well blended.
  • Pour into caramel-coated dish.
  • Place dish in a larger baking pan and pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the dish.
  • Bake in a preheated oven[350 deg F] for 45 minutes to an hour, until a knife inserted in the middle of the custard comes out clean.
  • Chill several hours or overnight.
  • To serve, run a knife around the rim of the custard and invert it on a serving plate.
  • Cut in wedges.
