Ah summer… it’s the time that you least want to congregate in the kitchen – and that’s saying something considering I really like cooking. But come on, sun, sand, deck, bbq.. let’s try to save wear and tear on our kitchens and instead work on quick and easy recipes.
So my summer cooking and baking rules – especially for the cottage – Super Quick, Super Good and Super Simple.
This baked maple custard fits the bill in spades – and since it uses ingredients you should always have around it’s a great last minute desert option.
Pour into ramekins, silicon muffin liners (my choice), or teacups set in a pan of warm water
Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 45 minutes and check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of a custard. It should come out clean. If not continue to bake for up to another 15 minutes.
Serve warm out of the oven OR chill in the fridge for later (if you can manage to wait).
