Does anyone have a good recipe for home made custard?

I can’t be bothered to leave my house and go and buy some, but I’ve got a craving, does anyone have a simple recipe for making custard?

    You can remove the chocolate as well as espresso powder if you do not desire them.


    3 ounces best-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped coarse

    6 tablespoons sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
    6 large egg yolks
    1 large whole egg
    whipped cream (optional)


    1–Preheat oven to 320 degrees F.
    2–Melt chocolate over low heat.
    3–In a saucepan, combine cream, milk and 2 tblsps sugar and bring to bare simmer, stirring occasionally.
    4–In a small bowl combine 2 tblsps of the milk mixture with the espresso powder and stir into the milk mixture with the chocolate.
    5–In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, egg, and remaining ¼ cup sugar for 1 minute, or until the mixture is blended well.
    6–Add milk mixture in a stream, whisking, and strain through a fine sieve into a large measuring cup.
    7–Spoon off the froth and pour into six 5-ounce custard cups.
    Cover cups with foil.
    8–Arrange cups in a baking pan and pour hot water around them to reach halfway up sides.
    9–Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until just set.
    10–Remove from oven, let cups sit in hot water for 10 minutes, remove, and let cool completely.
    11–Chill 3 hours and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

    Easy baked custard with nutmeg

    2 cups milk
    2 eggs
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons sugar

    Beat together milk, eggs, salt, and sugar. Pour into custard cups; place cups in a pan with hot water nearly to top of custard line. Sprinkle each with nutmeg and bake at 325° for about 40 to 55 minutes, until custard is set.

    This really depends on depth of the baking dish. A knife inserted in center should come out clean. Makes 4 to 6, depending on size.

    Caramel Cup Custard

    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    3 eggs
    1 cup heavy cream
    3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a nonreactive saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar and lemon juice. Cook the sugar until it dissolves and turns smooth and brown, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and spoon 1 tablespoon of the caramel into 4 (6-ounce) ramekins. Place the ramekins in a baking pan. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, vanilla and remaining sugar together, until the sugar dissolves. Pour the egg/cream mixture into each ramekin. Fill the baking pan with enough water to reach three quarters of the way up the sides of the cups. Bake the custards for 1 hour, or until the custards are set. Remove the custards from the oven and cool. Refrigerate the custards for at least 4 hours. Loosen the custards and invert onto a small plate. Garnish with whipped cream and fresh mint.

    It tastes really good. Must try!!!!!!!!!
