Ingredients

1 cup sugar

5 eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Fresh whipped cream, for garnish

Sprigs of mint, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Butter 8 (6-ounce) custard cups. In a small skillet over medium heat, melt 1/2 cup sugar with a couple drops of water, stirring constantly until it is a light brown syrup. Pour syrup into buttered cups. Place cups in baking pan for easy handling.
  3. In large bowl with mixer at low speed, beat eggs, salt, and remaining 1/2 cup sugar until lemon-colored. Gradually beat in milk and vanilla. Once mixture has settled, with all air bubbles out, pour mixture into cups.
  4. Pour hot water into baking pan to within 1-inch of top of cups. Bake 1 hour or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool, loosen custard with knife; invert.

Cook’s Note

Try sprinkling ground nutmeg on each custard before baking.
