Fastest Baked Custard Ever

Fastest Baked Custard Ever


  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Ground cinnamon for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place 5 6-ounce, oven-safe custard cups in a baking pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla until well blended.
  • Pour mixture evenly into custard cups and sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
  • Pour hot water into the roasting pan ½-inch up the sides of the cups.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until a small sharp knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Custards will be slightly jiggly in the center but will set as they cool.
  • Remove each cup from the water bath and allow to cool completely. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
