Hi Everyone,

I am new to this message board and am very excited to get an opportunity to be apart of it.  I love to bake and cook.  I recently tried to make a custard with eggs, salt, milk, nutmeg, vanilla extract.  The directions said to heat oven to 350 for 35-40 mins.  I did it for 35 mins, I let it cool but the problem I had was it tasted like scrambled eggs.  Why would that be? 


Thank you,
Crystal

Here is the recipe I used. How do you make yours?

Ingredients

4 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (12 fluid ounce) canNESTLE® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
ground nutmeg

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F.
COMBINE eggs, sugar and salt in large mixer bowl. Add evaporated milk, water and vanilla extract; beat until mixed. Pour into six 6-ounce custard cups. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Place cups in 13 x 9-inch baking pan; fill pan with hot water to 1-inch depth.
BAKE for 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Remove cups to wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Thank you,
Crystal

That looks so good!!!  I want to try that.  It could be that I may have cooked it too long.  Maybe I should have checked it 25 mins into the baking and I should try just egg yolks.  Thats a great idea to eat them for breakfast.  How long do you bake your Flan and at what temp? 

Thank you,
Crystal

Prettycake:  Thank you so much. I would love to try the Flan you make.  Next time I go on my mission to make one, I will give it a try and let you know how I did.  Hopefully, I can do an okay job with making the Flan. 

Freshkid:  Thank you so much for your reply to my message.  It all makes sense.  I would love to try your recipe as well.  I usually get the basics down of baking something like Flan, and then I like to tweek it up some to make it my own.  Thank you again to the both of you for helping me understand what the cause could be.  With all of the information I have received from you both, I feel more comfortable with giving it another try and this time, use the advice that was given to me.

Thank you,
Crystal
