The soft, warm texture of the custard is something gentle for the waking tummy and tongue. It only takes a few minutes to prepare -- great for dessert, too! Drizzle with hot jam or maple syrup. In the summer, garnish with fresh raspberries and mint from the garden!

I never tried the original version of this recipe but I give it 5 stars with the alterations I made. Instead of honey I added 1/2 cup sugar and cut the eggs down to 6. I also used frozen wild blueberries which I prefer to cultivated blueberries. It was sooo tasty! Read More

I used raspberries instead of blueberries and it came out fine but it was definitely not sweet enough for dessert. I added extra sugar in the recipe and ended up sprinkling more sugar on top before eating it. Without the extra sugar on top it was like scrambled eggs with raspberries in them. Read More

It came out more like flan than it did a traditional custard. It was very good though. My kids really enjoyed it. The top got a little brown but that didn't detract from the taste. The flour also seemed to settle a little at the bottom but that made for almost a crust. I would make this again. Read More

I thought this was really good. My kids weren't crazy about it. I thought it needed to be a bit sweeter so I sprinkled more powdered sugar on it before serving. Next time I may try raseberries and see if the kids like it better but as I said I thought it was great. Read More

Not over sweet. Personally I find that to be a good thing because I think we drifted to the over-sweet in our food these days. This recipe reminds me of the food in my grandparent's bakery in Germany. I used gluten-free flour. It worked fine. I could taste a little salt in it so next time I plan on halving the amount of salt used. I used Martha Stewart colored baking sugar on top in addition to the confectioners' sugar. I love using that stuff. Read More

made this with other reviewers suggestions for change and my family really liked it! I used six eggs, i changed the flour amount to three quarters of a cup and added three quarters of a cup of sugar on top of the honey. it was sweet enough for our family. I personally don't really like custard and I thought this was delicious! Will make again - thank you for the recipe! Read More

I liked it but it was very eggy - next time I will use more vanilla and sugar instead of honey. I might also try a stronger fruit such as raspberries or even a mix of berries. Also it was difficult to tell how done it was supposed to be - it was cooked and puffed around the edges but not in the middle - and it all fell as it cooled which was sad as it looked much less appetizing!
