  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • Nutmeg to taste


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius

  • Pour into a baking dish
  • Place baking dish into a larger roasting tray
  • Fill roasting tray with boiling water until it reaches half way up the baking dish
  • Grate fresh nutmeg over the top
  • Bake for 50-65 minutes, depending on the size of your baking dish. The custard will still be very wobbly when you take it out
  • Let it sit in the remaining water in the roasting tray on the bench until cool. You can eat it warm or transfer to fridge until cold then enjoy

*This custard is best consumed right away, don’t leave it in the fridge too long.
*You can make individual serves in ramekins, just reduce the cooking time.
