Jeanie

"This simple custard is wonderful when you are not feeling well, but adapted with half-and-half and no-carb sweetener, it makes a great change on a low-carb diet."

Made according to directions, but custard had a hard time setting up. Continued to bake longer, but it never really set like any other custard I've made.

Delicious custard. I did use 5 eggs so it would set better. I love it covered with nutmeg. Pure comfort food.

This is custard just like my Mom used to make. It is not meant to be a 'hard set' custard. When it is done it will still appear to be soft. The key is the knife test. When it comes out clean ...

Very delicious,change from 4 egg to 5 eggs.

I made this custard. It was easy BUT i wish i read the reviews first and added an extra egg. Took a long time to set up. It was a little watery but still delicious.

Loved it. 5 eggs is key to a firmer texture. Not too sweet, great with nutmeg!

Loved it. Just like old time custard. Not a firm set like custard for a pie, it was perfect. Will make this again.

This was a wonderful recipe! Thank you for posting this - it was easy to make and very comforting
