  1. Crack eggs into a medium sized glass bowl (I use this one) and whip. 

  2. Add salt and vanilla and mix well. Blend in maple syrup and milk with a whisk.

  3. Bake egg custard in the same mixing bowl at 400 F/204 C for 45-50 minutes or until bubbly on top and a knife inserted at the center of the bowl comes out clean. 

  4. Egg custard is delicious served warm or cold with a bit if nutmeg sprinkled on top!

  5. Refrigerate any egg custard leftovers. They will last about a week.

Recipe Notes

Goat or cow milk both work well in this recipe.  You may also substitute whole coconut milk if desired for a dairy free version.

If you wish to use duck eggs instead of chicken eggs, use 4 instead of 6 eggs. Duck eggs are quite a bit larger than chicken eggs.
