Baked Custard

  • Yield 6 servings

This slightly sweet dessert is much less fattening that traditional custards.


We serve this custard at our B and B, Bonnie's Parsonage in Holland, Michigan. It is delicious with fresh berries on top. This dish is like eating silk.


3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 300F.
  2. Mix eggs, milk and sugar in a medium-size bowl until smooth.
  3. Pour into 6 (3-inch) ramekin dishes or custard cups. Dust with a pinch of nutmeg.
  4. Place the cups in an 11 x 8-inch glass baking dish filled halfway with water.
  5. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until knife comes out clean when inserted in center.
