Portuguese Baked Custards
Portuguese Baked Custards recipe from the Cook’s Diary.
Grated orange zest 1 tsp
Caster sugar 1 tbsp
Egg 1 medium plus 1 egg yolk
Milk 200ml (7fl oz)
Ground cinnamon a pinch
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°fan/Gas 4. Put orange zest, sugar and egg plus egg yolk into a jug and whisk together.
Pour milk into a pan, bring it just to the boil and then gradually whisk it into egg mixture. Pour into two ramekin dishes and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Put dishes into a small roasting tin and pour enough boiling water into tin to come halfway up the sides of the dishes. Cook for 20–25 minutes or until custards are set. Leave to cool then chill before serving.
