Maple Baked Custard

3 Servings

This simple custard is "baked" on top of the stove. It is equally good for breakfast as it is for a snack or dessert. Serve it with seasonal fruit.

2 eggs
1 cup skim milk or soy milk
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
Ground nutmeg

1. Combine eggs, milk, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk or beat until well blended.

2. Pour into 3 glass custard cups. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

3. Place the custard cups on a folded paper towel in a skillet with a tight fitting lid. Pour water into the pan, about 1 inch deep, and cover.

4. Bring the water to a rolling boil.
Remove pan from heat and let sit for 15 minutes without lifting the lid.

5. Serve warm or cold.
