Baked Custard Recipe

A smooth, creamy and rich custard recipe that doesn't use a grain of sugar?


There’s no sugar at all in this old baked custard recipe.

I found this particular recipe in a cookbook that was published in 1918.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 or 3 eggs, beaten slightly
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 2 cups of scalded skim milk
  • 1/3 teaspoon of either nutmeg or cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt

Baked Custard Instructions:

  1. Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients, and pour into custard cups.
  2. Bake the custard cups set in a pan of hot water (the water should be at about the same level as the custard in the cups).
  3. This old recipe doesn’t say how long or at what temperature to cook the custard, but borrowing from other custard recipes, 350 degrees F for 25 – 30 minutes should be close to correct.
