Amish Baked Custard

Amish Baked Custard is a delicious and comforting dessert that’s relatively easy to make. Here’s a simple recipe for you to follow:

Ingredients:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • Ground nutmeg, for sprinkling

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare a baking dish by greasing it lightly or spraying it with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Beat the Eggs: In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs lightly using a whisk or electric mixer.
  3. Add Sugar and Salt: Gradually add the granulated sugar and salt to the beaten eggs, continuing to whisk until well combined.
  4. Mix in Vanilla Extract and Milk: Stir in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the whole milk while continuously whisking until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  5. Strain the Mixture (Optional): For a smoother custard, you can strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any lumps or air bubbles.

  1. Pour into Baking Dish: Pour the custard mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  2. Bake: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until the custard is set around the edges but slightly jiggly in the center.
  3. Cool: Once baked, remove the custard from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving. It will continue to set as it cools.
  4. Chill (Optional): For a colder custard, you can refrigerate it for a couple of hours before serving.

  1. Serve: Sprinkle the baked custard with ground nutmeg before serving, if desired. Serve it warm or chilled, depending on your preference.
