Easy to make, this creamy custard with nutmeg comes together quickly from ingredients usually kept on hand. It’s a perfect dessert for the impromptu get together.

1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 cups milk

Place 1/2 cup sugar in a cast iron or heavy bottom skillet on medium heat. Stirring constantly, cook until golden brown. Pour the syrup into 4 10-ounce custard cups.

In a bowl combine 1/3 cup sugar, vanilla and nutmeg; slowly add the milk and beat well. Pour the mixture over the syrup in the custard cups. Place your cups in a water bath to bake; place cups in a 9 x 13 x 2-inch pan and pour in 1 inch of hot water. Cover pan with aluminum foil. Bake at 350° for 45 – 45 minutes. Test by inserting a knife into the center. When done, it will come out clean.

When cooled, serve by running a spatula between the custard and cup to loosen sides; invert onto a pretty dessert plate.

Yield: 4 servings
