Baked Custard Recipe for lovers this Valentine's Day
This Valentine's Day, instead of reaching for the typical box of chocolates, why not whip up a mid-week treat for your lover or friend? There is nothing better than a decadent home-baked treat that you can enjoy with others.
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 cups milk
1 tbs vanilla extract
Nutmeg to taste
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Place all ingredients except nutmeg into a blender and combine until smooth.
Pour into a baking dish
Place baking dish into a larger roasting tray
Fill roasting tray with boiling water until it reaches half way up the baking dish
Grate fresh nutmeg over the top
Bake for 50-65 minutes, depending on the size of your baking dish. The custard will still be very wobbly when you take it out
Let it sit in the remaining water in the roasting tray on the bench until cool. You can eat it warm or transfer to fridge until cold then enjoy
This custard is best consumed right away, don't leave it in the fridge too long.
You can make individual serves in ramekins, just reduce the cooking time.
