• 2½ cups semi skimmed milk (600ml) 1% milk
  • 3 eggs medium
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla paste if you have it!)
  • 2 tbsp sugar (30g) I used superfine / caster
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg


  • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 3 / 170oC / 150oC Fan / 325o
  • Heat the milk over a medium heat until it is hot but not boiling.
  • Whisk the eggs, vanilla and sugar in a jug. Once the milk is hot, remove it from the heat and pour a little of it into the eggs, whisking vigorously.  Now slowly add the rest of the hot milk to the eggs, making sure that you whisk continuously. By doing this, you are tempering the cold eggs and preventing them from cooking and curdling when you add the hot milk. 
  • Pour the custard mixture into 6 ramekins. Place the ramekins side by side into a deep baking tray. Pour enough warm water into the bottom of the baking  tray to come ⅓ of the way up the ramekins. 
  • Place the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake for 25 – 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven once the custards are set, have turned a light golden brown and have a bit of a wobble. 
  • Sprinkle a pinch of two of grated nutmeg on top of each egg custard before serving.
