Happy 4th everyone!!!
Have people coming over, but not a lot of time to whip up a sweet treat? Have I got the answer for you! Try a baked custard! More than likely, you already have everything you need for this recipe in your kitchen.

This recipe ended up making more custard than my 4 custard cups could hold, so I used a small pyrex cup (as you will see later on).

Step One:
Pre-heat your oven to 350° and in your mixing bowl, whisk together:
2 eggs
2 cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla (this is optional)

Step 2:
Pour mixture into four (or eventually 5 in my case) un-greased custard cups. You can use glass Pyrex ones like me OR you can use those cute & colorful stoneware ones.  photo photo2_zpse5ef189b.png
Step 3:
Place your custard cups in a glass baking pan. Then, pour hot water in to the pan AROUND your custard cups (only fill the pan to about 3/4 in).

Step 4:
Bake (uncovered) for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. 
When they're done, (yes...they will be a little sloshy...I learned this the hard way) remove the custard cups from the water onto your cooling rack (**Important note** If you keep them in the water they will continue to bake and will curdle).  Serve warm or chilled and be sure to keep leftovers in the fridge!
