Caramel Custard Recipe
Makes 6 servings
Ingredients: 1/2 cup (125 ml) granulated sugar, 2½ cups (625 ml) milk, 3 large eggs, beaten, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, a dash of salt
Instructions: Heat the sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until it caramelizes. Watch continuously and move the saucepan around so the caramel colors evenly. Remove from the heat.
Carefully pour half of the milk down the side of the saucepan (it foams up quickly) Put back over low heat until all the caramel dissolves in the milk. Remove from the heat. Stir in beaten eggs, remaining milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Add the caramel mixture and mix together.
Grease 6 custard cups and pour in sufficient custard to come within about 1/2 inch of the top. Place in a baking pan with about 3/4-inch depth of water and bake in a 350º F (175ºC) oven until set, for about 20-30 minutes.
Alternatively, put the same depth of water into an electric skillet. Set the temperature to 260º F (130º C), place the molds in, cover, and cook until set, for 20-30 minutes. Leave standing for about 5 minutes, then turn out and serve hot.
If preferred cold, leave in the molds, refrigerate and turn out when required.
