This simple custard is wonderful when you are not feeling well, but adapted with half-and-half and no-carb sweetener, it makes a great change on a low-carb diet.

Made according to directions, but custard had a hard time setting up. Continued to bake longer, but it never really set like any other custard I've made.

Yes this is an amazing recipe. I cook at a Hospice facility and I get raves from patients and family.I just add 5 eggs and it is a little firmer. I take this to neighbors when there is a person who needs to feel loved.

Delicious custard. I did use 5 eggs so it would set better. I love it covered with nutmeg. Pure comfort food.
