Fabulous baked custard
You will need:
2/3 cup granulated sugar (for melting)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup full cream milk
2 tablespoons of vanilla
1. To make the sweet, golden, caramelly brown sauce, you place the sugar into a nonstick pan over medium heat and let it slowly melt. Don't stir the mixture. Once all the sugar crystals have melted you should pour it into a baking dish and place the dish inside a saucepan filled with 2cm of very hot water.
2. The cream, milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla all get combined in a blender for one minute, then poured into the dish with the melted sugar. Place the dish in a preheated 180 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes.
3. Allow to cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator overnight.
4. To serve, run a knife around the edges, place a plate over the top and invert.
Baked custard is such an inexpensive, simple and easy dessert to make. The syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness to the rich creamy texture.
