Baked Honey Custard Recipe
This custard has a delicate honey flavor. Serve it cool: It tastes even better frosty cold than it does warm from the oven.
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups milk
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1. Whisk the eggs, honey and salt together in a mixing bowl.
2. Heat the milk, and add it slowly to the egg mixture, whisking constantly.
3. Stir in the vanilla.
4. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish or into 8 individual custard cups.
5. Bake in a 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for about 1 hour or until the custard is firm and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Variations: Sprinkle the top of the unbaked custard with freshly grated nutmeg, stir grated fresh coconut into the unbaked mixture or drop slices of banana evenly over the pre-oven custard (they’ll float on top).
Yield: Serves 8
