  • In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil over high heat, then reduce to low heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the next 6 ingredients, then whisk the mixture into the hot water.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and bubbles, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in butter.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks.
  • Then, whisk half-and-half mixture, a little at a time, into the egg yolks.
  • Whisk egg yolk mixture into the saucepan.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture bubbles again, about 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into half-and-half mixture. Try to use a rubber spatula to do this, and fold until just blended.
  • Pour mixture into prepared casserole dish, and bake until golden brown,about 40 minutes. A knife inserted into center should come out clean.

It has become a daily staple for me. I never make a meal without first consulting Recipezaar! It is my cooking/baking lifeline! I also just joined as a Premium Member, and looking forward to the extra benefits and meeting other ZaarMembers, now that I can use Zmail! <br /><br />I am also a LOVER of CHOCOLATE!! It's a vegetable, you know...it is! It's a bean! :) <br /><br />Along that note, I recently lost my source of income and direct sales was not on my radar whatsoever, but a friend introduced me to Dove Chocolate Discoveries, you know the Dove Chocolate company... What better way to make money and have fun than doing CHOCOLATE TASTING PARTIES?! Now I have a full calendar and making great money! All because of chocolate. I love what I do :) <br /><br />I also LOVE love love to sing, and help others acheive their dreams in the Performing Arts Industry, actors, singers, models, bands... I've helped many people you'd recognize receive representation and launch careers on tv, film, with record labels and in the modeling industry!
