Old fashioned steamed vanilla custard—pure and simple.
4 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/3 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In medium bowl, whisk eggs with sugar until well mixed and light-colored. Whisk in milk and vanilla and pour into 4 oven-proof, 6-ounce custard cups.
- Cover each cup with small square of foil, place in steaming basket, cover, and steam until custards are just set but jiggle slightly in the center, about 20 minutes.
- Remove from steamer and let cool 5 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
