Vanilla Custard

Homemade custard is so simple and comforting. It has a long elapsed time in the oven, but the basic preparation is a snap.



  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 14 teaspoon Salt
  • 14 cup Sugar
  • 18 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, optional

Step 1

Beat eggs with other ingredients. I like to use a bowl with a pouring lip and use a handheld mixer.


  • 2 cups Milk, scalded

Step 2

In a heavy bottom sauce pan, scald milk (bring to 185 degrees but not boiling).

Step 3

While using the handheld mixer on low to medium speed, slowly add the scalded milk, stirring mixture constantly.

Step 4

Pour mixture into 6 custard cups or small ramekins. Place the custard cups in a 13x9 pan filled with hot water to a level about even with the liquid custard. Bake at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes. Remove when a knife poked into one comes out clean.
