    I did something wrong when cooking this custard, it didn't set. Tasted while it was still warm and it had great flavor, just didn't set. That is why it has 4 stars. The recipe sounded really good and easy to make, will try making it again and let you know how it went. Made for ZWTIII.

    I love custard and had to try this one. I made half the recipe only , it is nice and creamy and just a hint of cinnamon. I didn't sprinkle extra cinnamon on top. I will be making this again.Thanks
