Comfort Food for a Rainy Day

It’s one of those "comfort food" days at our house. Here is one of our favorites. "Creamy Vanilla-Almond Custard".  This recipe makes 6 individual servings. I found this recipe a few years ago in the Press Democrat.
Creamy Vanilla-Almond Custard

2-1/2   cups skim or 1% milk

1        cup of Egg substitute

1/3     cup of sugar.  (I use part reg. sugar, and part Splenda)

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

1/4 tsp.  Almond extract

Vegetable cooking spray.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; stir well. I use my portable mixer on low.
Spray six-6 oz. custard cups with vegetable spray (PAM) and pour custard mixture
evenly into the custard cups.  Place cups in a large shallow 9" x 13" baking pan: add
hot water to the pan the depth of approx. 1" inch.

Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour -15 mins., or until a knife inserted in the center of the custard comes out clean. Remove cups from water and cool slightly. Cover and chill thoroughly.  Optional: Sprinkle evenly with sliced Almonds before serving. Enjoy!

Note: Only four custard cups in the photo because I used 9 oz. cups!

    Hi Judith,
    Thanks. No, not writing a cookbook. Just thought I would share this recipe on a rainy day. One of our favorites Actually those are pot holders I made ages ago. I started the trend, gave some to Betty Upchurch, and the members liked the idea and started making them for the guild boutique. Those pot holders last forever.

    Angie: Thanks for sharing the recipe. It reminds me of my childhood when it would be snowing (Michigan) and my mother would make pudding and other things to take away the chill of winter.

    Doris: Your welcome! Yes, when I first made this recipe the taste brought back all kinds of childhood memories.
