Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 1/2 cups warm milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water in a heavy saucepan; cook over low heat 10 minutes or until sugar caramelizes, tipping pan to incorporate mixture. Pour evenly into 8 (4-ounce) custard cups.
  2. Whisk together eggs, egg yolks, and remaining 1/2 cup sugar until blended. Gradually add warm milk, whisking constantly; stir in vanilla. Pour mixture into prepared custard cups. Cover each with aluminum foil; place in a jellyroll pan. Add hot water to pan to a depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch.
  3. Bake at 325° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove custard cups from water; uncover. Cool in cups on wire rack. Cover and chill 3 hours.
  4. Run a knife around edge of custard to loosen; invert each onto a dessert plate.
  5. Note: Custard can also be made in a 9-inch cakepan. Caramelize sugar in cakepan instead of saucepan.
