Baked Custard

Nothing beats a simple, traditional dessert like a creamy baked custard – this is the ultimate comfort food. And it’s so easy to prepare with only a handful of basic ingredients – eggs, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg for a hint of spice and Meadow Fresh Full Cream Milk – so there’s no need to rush out to the supermarket with a detailed shopping list. The kids will adore the simple silky perfection of this pudding as much as you do. 



  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C.

  2. Heat the milk until almost boiling and whisk it into the beaten eggs with the sugar and vanilla.

  3. Pour the custard through a strainer into a 20cm pie dish.

  4. Sprinkle the top with nutmeg and set the dish carefully in a shallow roasting pan.

  5. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the pie dish.

  6. Slide the whole assembly carefully into the oven.

  7. Bake for 1 hour or until set. Serve hot or cold.
