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!
