Grandma Boyd's Custard

During the late summer days, my Grandma Boyd would always make my brother and I custard. I remember watching her whisk egg yolks and sugar together until they became a pale yellow color. And the steadiness of her arms when she poured the water bath. Now that she's older, I decided to spend some quality time with her and to make these bowls of goodness. Here's the recipe:


2 cups of milk ( grandma used canned milk)

1/2 cup of sugar or 1/4 cup of honey/agave

1/4 tsp salt

2 whole eggs or 4 egg yolks depending on how rich you want it 

1 tbs vanilla

1/2 tsp Cinnamon each ramekin

1/2 tsp Nutmeg for each ramekin


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit or 150 celsius

Step 1: Put your eggs and sugar together in a bowl with spout and whisk until pale yellow

Step 2: As you whisk incorporate the milk, vanilla, and salt and whip until frothy.

Step 3: Pour mixture into ramekins about 3/4 the way up.

Step 4: Sprinkle Cinnamon and Nutmeg on top of each custard

Step 5: Place each ramekin into a large pan that has high sides.

Step 6: Fill the pan with water until it reaches each ramekin half way

Step 7: Bake for an hour until it's set

I have another recipe on the way! Stay tuned for more!

Much love!
