Lately we have been concentrating on eating fresh food and keeping leftovers at a minimum. Baked custards are a great way to use up the continuous supply of cream in the fridge. Using  organic eggs and fresh nutmeg makes a huge difference. Mum thinks the shelves are rattling in the fridge!

Ingredients
  1. 1 3/4 cups organic milk
  2. 1/2 cup pouring cream
  3. 1 vanilla bean or 1/2 tsp vanilla essence/ 1/4 vanilla bean paste
  4. 3 organic eggs
  5. 1/4 cup castor sugar
  6. Pinch of salt
  7. Freshly grated nutmeg
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat fan forced oven to 160°C and place 6 large ramekins in a deep baking tray.
  2. 2. In a saucepan bring the milk, cream and vanilla to a simmer (Do not allow milk to boil). Take off heat straight away and leave to cool slightly.
  3. 3. In a bowl whisk the eggs, castor sugar and salt together until the sugar dissolves.
  4. 4. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the warm milk, stirring constantly.
  5. 5. Strain the mixture and pour into prepared ramekins. Fill the tray with boiling water until it reaches two thirds up the sides of the ramekins. (This will act as a water bath and will create steam).
  6. 6. Bake for 30 minutes. Transfer onto a wire rack to cool before storing in the refrigerator.

    Baked custard is a recently acquired taste for me. I used to hate because most people prepare it with synthetic vanilla extract and I can’t stand it. Now I’m in love with it because I only use vanilla beans or paste 🙂

      Touche! I couldn’t agree with you more 🙂 Using vanilla beans or paste definitely beats artificial essence!
