  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk eggs in a bowl until lightly beaten. Add milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract; gently beat until incorporated. Pour mixture into six 1/4-cup ramekins. Arrange ramekins in a baking dish. Pour enough water into baking dish to cover ramekins halfway up the sides.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center of a custard comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove ramekins from baking dish and refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 1 hour.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Recipe makes six 1-cup servings or 12 half cup servings, depending on the size of the ramekin.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

SERVING SIZE NOTED IS INCORRECT. This recipe makes 12 - 1/2 cup ramekin servings. I will again see if I can get A.R. to change. My apology.

I changed the serving size to 4 servings but used three eggs versus 2 3/4 no further changes were made in the ingredients. However, I baked in Pyrex custard cups versus ramekins for 55 minutes....

Wonderful and soooo easy. Just be sure and bake in shallow dishes, otherwise it does not set.

This is a very nice, simple recipe. I am trying to watch my diet but I still like treats sometimes, so I changed this by using a good quality sugar free syrup and skim milk. Those changes gave...
