Baked Custard

Serves 3

Ingredients

  • 1 egg or egg substitute
  • 1 cup low-fat or fat-free milk
  • 1 tbs. artificial sweetener
  • *Note: Not all artificial sweeteners keep their sweeteness when baked at high temps for a period of time. Ones such as Acesulfame-K, Splenda and Sweet-n-Low would work OK in this recipe, Equal or Aspartame probably would not.

  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Preparation

  1. Break egg into small mixing bowl and beat slightly.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and beat well.
  3. Dampen custard cups by running under water, removing excess, and leaving a slight film.
  4. Pour mixture into custard cups and sprinkle well with nutmeg.
  5. Bake in 350 F oven in a shallow pan of water for 40-50 minutes.
  6. A silver knife inserted in the center will come out clean when the custard is done.
