Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500ml milk
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
or 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Method

  1. Heat milk in heavy saucepan over low heat. Mix together eggs, egg yolk, sugar, salt and vanilla or nutmeg. Mix well, but do not beat. When small bubbles appear around edge of milk pan, pour about one-third into egg mixture and mix until well blended. Add this mixture to remaining milk and mix again.
  2. Put 6 buttered custard cups or 1 large buttered ovenproof dish in a baking tin and fill with strained custard. Carefully pour hot water into baking tin to come halfway up sides of cups or dish. Bake in a preheated moderately slow oven for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in centre of custard comes out clean. Remove custard cups or large dish from water. Cool.
