Rich flavor and a silky consistency make this Baked Custard a guaranteed hit with your family and guests. Combining comfort food and dessert, this simple yet sophisticated dish features only five ingredients, making it a fantastic home-cooked sweet treat for chefs of any skill level.
- 8 yolks
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 2-1⁄4 cups heavy cream
- 1-1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- fresh berries
Preheat the oven on the Steam Mode at 200°F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, salt, sugar, and vanilla until well combined.
In a saucepan, bring the cream up to a simmer over medium heat.
Remove the pan from the heat and with a ladle, very slowly add the cream to the egg mixture while whisking continuously.
Strain this mixture through a fine mesh strainer and divide evenly between 6 ramekins.
Place the ramekins on the perforated pan and steam for 30 minutes.
The custards will be set when done, but will pull from sides of ramekins when tipped at an angle.
Top with fresh berries.
