Recipe type: Dessert,
Cuisine: International, Dessert, American
Serves: 10
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup (225g) sugar
  • 1 quart (946ml) milk
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 dash of cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  1. Preheat oven to 300 or 150c or Gas 2.
  2. This dish bakes in a hot water bath. Choose an oven-safe casserole dish and a larger pot that is large enough and deep enough to allow insertion of the casserole dish. I use a cast iron chicken fryer to create the water bath.
  3. Mix eggs and sugar together. Add milk, salt, vanilla and cinnamon and mix. Pour into greased oven-safe casserole dish. Shake nutmeg so a small coating covers the mixture. Place casserole dish into hot water bath. Bake for about 1 hour until a knife inserted into centre comes out clean.
