Basic Custard Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Mix all ingredients together well and divide among 4,  6 oz  (or 6  4 oz) custard cups or ramekens. Arrange the filled cups in a baking pan large enough to hold them without crowding. Pour enough hot water into the baking pan  to reach about half way up the cups.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes in preheated oven. Custard should be just a bit wiggly in the center when removed from the oven. Eat warm or cold.
