- 2 cups milk
- 2 large eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
- Pinch nutmeg (fresh-grated if possible)
Gather the ingredients.
Heat the oven to 325 F.
Place four 6-ounce custard cups in a larger baking pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, salt, and sugar.
Divide the custard mixture evenly among the custard cups.
Fill the pan with hot water to a depth almost even to the top of the custard; sprinkle each serving with nutmeg.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 to 55 minutes, or until custard is set. This depends on the depth of the baking dish. The custard will still have a slight jiggle in the center; a knife inserted in the center should come out clean.
Serve and enjoy!
- Don't skip the step of cooking this custard in a bain marie, as the purpose of a bain-marie is that it creates a gentle heat around the food and results in a uniform cooking process.
