So easy so delish! I used prepared nog which tasted very nutmeggy already so instead of using nutmeg I sifted on a layer of cinnamon. Love this overall could have eaten the whole thing by myself but...it's not very eggnoggy. It simply tastes like a delicious vanilla custard. Next time I'll use the nutmeg instead and see if that ups the eggnog flavor. Overall love it will make it again. Read More

I was very disappointed in this custard. It took an hour and 45 minutes to bake and when the toothpick finally came out clean the tops were so brown it almost looked like they were burnt--though luckily they weren't. While the taste was pretty good the consistency was almost disgusting eggy curds and watery on the bottom. Not recommended if you like real custards. Read More

This is a perfect custard recipe! I have been making custards my whole adult life and this recipe is among the best and easiest! I cannot for the life of me figure out what other reviewers are doing wrong with this recipe. It is fail-proof! Check your ovens! Read More

It was so rich that I could only eat a little. It was so simple to make though and the leftovers were gone the next day. Read More

I am NOT a custard fan but...this was terrific. I think it would work as a Cream Brule (??) it was so rich and creamy. Read More

Pretty good. Tastes like eggnog flan but without the sugar syrup (which would be a nice addition). Nothing too exciting or special but a nice way to use up eggnog after the holidays. Read More

I had the same problem as wildwing - very curdy like and loads of liquid in the bottom. Although the taste was good the texture was nothing like custard. So disappointing... Read More
