Just baked this easy peasy 'Orange Custrad' few days ago.All you need milk,sugar,egg,cream and vanilla to bake this silky sweet custards.I had never made or tried a baked custard before and really not sure the taste either so this is the time..I just halved the recipe for my preference and give it a try.
Its taste delicious and very sweet but again this is not my cuppa coz its taste so eggy and sweet,even after I cut down the sugar.My lit cutie pie loved it,since than I can make another go just for himself and this a good dessert those have a really sweet tooth.I had used a sponge cloth to prevent the ramekins moving while cook.I thought that's a bit safer rather than tea towel.
If you've like it just give try might be you love taste...:-)
