Baked Custard

Baked Custard, a creamy and smooth dessert, great served with fresh berries.

Baked Custard

1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a glass 1 1/2 quart baking dish.
  2. Place milk, eggs, sugar and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until frothy; about one minute.  Pour into the baking dish; sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Place the baking dish in a baking pan (like a 9 x 13 inch pan) that will accommodate the baking dish easily and pour hot water into the pan so that it covers about an inch up the sides of the baking dish.
  4. Place on middle rack and bake in the preheated 350F oven for about 45 minutes.  A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Can be served warm or chilled. Top with fresh berries.

This dessert is quick to prepare and simple, you just get it into the oven for a nice, creamy dessert. I really enjoy eating custard slightly warm and served with fresh berries. To me it is a nice little dessert treat. This custard is slightly sweet with a hint of vanilla flavor. I personally prefer creme brulee but since I don’t have a torch I like this baked custard as a wonderfully delicious alternative.
