Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat the milk, sugar, salt, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl; pour into a baking dish. Sprinkle the cereal over the mixture and dot with the butter pieces. Gently set the baking dish into a larger baking dish. Pour enough hot water into the larger dish to reach at least 1 inch up the side of the dish with the custard.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Sprinkle the nutmeg over the dish to serve.

This recipe is amazing!! Other ones you have to cook it all on the stovetop before baking; this one you just combine the ingredients and bake. Mine didn't need the entire hour, it was ready in...

1 hour is definately too long, when you bake custard that long it tightens all the protiens and comes out watery, next time i will start testing for doneness at about 35 to 40 minutes

Was the restaurant in Gloucester Amelia's? That's where I first had this. This version has more grapenuts, next time I'd put in half the amount. I doubled the recipe and served it with whipped c...
