I love baked custard, and this was wonderful!!! Very easy to make! I forgot to read the sidenotes about the recipe, so I didn't use the dish towel at the bottom, I just added the water to the baking dish my custard cups were in. Took a long time to set. I ended up stepping out to talk to a neighbor and plumb forgot. So an hour later, when I ran back in, it was set and looking good. So I'm still not too sure about the cooking time. I'll definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing!

Easy-peasy, yummy-scrummy comfort food. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It's exactly like my mother used to make when we were kids, but she can no longer cook, so now I get to prepare the treat for her! :)

I used half and half instead of milk and mixed about 1 T. allspice in with the mixture instead of on top. The water bath is a great idea and my custard was done in about 1 hour. I gave it 4 stars only because it was not set at the time called for. I served it warm with whipped cream that I whipped up while the custard was cooking. This is a comfort food dessert that I would even love for breakfast. Hey, it's got eggs and milk haha!

I have this recipe from the 1950 edition of "Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book." This is the best possible receipe for someone who's sick; it has always been my mother's food of choice after a seriosu illness. Love this recipe.

The ease of preparation alone makes this a 5 star recipe, but the taste is awesome and it was real special with a big dollop of whipped cream on top. Very refreshing and light and definately moreish!!! Loved it and will have often since it's so easy to make!
