This recipe reminds me a lot of a flan; it tastes a lot like my grandma's, except the trouble: this recipe is soooooo easy!!! I would advise though to BEAT eggs, sugar and salt, then to STIR IN evaporated milk, water and vanilla extract. If you beat these last ingredients, you will get foam on the top of the custard, which you can avoid by simply stirring them in.

Baked Custard was really easy to make and so delicious. I used a large glass pan (put the glass pan in water in a larger glass pan) because I did not have any custard cups and it worked out fine. Just had to let it bake for a longer time.

I have this down in my family's faves; simply luscious. Don't skimp on the sugar and salt as it detracts the egginess quite well, and add more of the vanilla, which complements it too. Sometimes I use soft brown sugar, which gives the custard a delicate caramel taste. Don't beat but stir carefully, when mixing, to avoid bubbles appearing on the surface. Depending on the size of your dish(es) and temperature of your oven, the timing is best looked at from 25 minutes onwards. Hope this helps; give it a try, do. Delectable.
