  • Caramelized Sugar Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup
  • Custard Ingredients

  • 2 cups
    whole milk
  • 1 cup (8 oz.)
    Better'n Eggs®
  • 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 tsp.


  • Heat oven to 300°F. In small heavy skillet or saucepan heat 1/2 cup sugar over medium heat, gently swirling pan (do not stir), until clear syrup forms and sugar just begins to turn a light golden brown (10 to 12 minutes)*. Immediately dip bottom of pan in cold water to stop cooking. Immediately spoon about 1 tablespoon mixture into 6 small (6 ounce) ungreased custard cups. Cool 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile combine all custard ingredients in large bowl. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over caramelized sugar in custard cups, filling each 3/4 full. Place cups in 13x9 inch baking pan; fill pan with 1-inch hot water**.

  • Bake 1 hour or until custard is set. (Custard remains very soft - be careful not to over bake.) Cool 30 minutes; refrigerate at least 8 hours.

  • To serve; run knife around inside edges of cups to loosen custard. Invert each custard onto small serving plates.

  • * Melting and caramelizing sugar is tricky. Be sure to use a heavy pan and to watch the sugar closely or it will burn.

    ** Be sure to use a water bath when baking the custard or it will over bake and brown.
