The cool thing about custard is the recipe is so basic:
2 cups milk
2 eggs (I store mine with coconut oil)
VIA ( I use Italian blend coffee) (associates link)
You may also add DIY vanilla extract. I like it both ways.
Then you just multiply that times how much you wish to make.
First you scald the milk by putting the milk in saucepan on the stove at medium heat. Stir as the milk heats up & when small bubbles from around the edge of the pan it is scalded. At this point whisk in one package of VIA ( I use Italian blend coffee) (associates link) for each 2 cups I am making. Remove from heat. Allow to cool a little. But you could just make a cup of extra strong coffee to add.
Whisk the egg/sugar mixture together with the milk. Add about 1 T. vanilla at this point.
Now recipes say cook at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. I actually do a lower heat (my oven runs hot) and the test if it is done is to insert a knife into the center and it comes out clean (not milky).
