Easy Baked Custard

Easy Baked Custard

D. Rattray
This easy old-fashioned egg custard is topped with a little ground nutmeg just before baking.

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • nutmeg


Beat together milk, eggs, salt, and sugar. Pour into custard cups; place cups in a pan with hot water nearly to top of custard line. Sprinkle each with nutmeg and bake at 325° for about 40 to 55 minutes, until custard is set. This really depends on depth of the baking dish. A knife inserted in center should come out clean. Makes 4 to 6, depending on size.

Good basic custard, Member starryblue32

This recipe makes a good, old-fashioned, custard. It won't taste like creme brulee or flan. It will taste like egg custard. It was exactly the recipe I was looking for to make the custard I enjoyed as a child. When checking it for doneness please note that it will look ""jiggley"" even when set-up.
