Here is the recipe I used. How do you make yours?
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
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.
Crystal Creative Ideas
Good morning. I believe your baked product tasted like scrabbled eggs is because they began to scrabble like they should do once the internal heat reaches & exceeds 185, degrees.
Crystal the reason you were instructed to fill your large baking pan with 1. inch high with water (BAIN~MARIE) is so that this concoction does not reach this level (185 F ) regardless that the oven heat is at 350 degrees. That is because water CANNOT go higher than 212, degrees at sea level so the custard is protected from reaching a high level.. Sooo, you must do these two things….you must increase the water level to 3/4 height of your custard cups with hot tap water & I think best you reduce the oven heat to 300 degrees where I bake my cheesecakes also in a BAIN~ MARIE
I must say Crystal I do not know why there is 1, cup of water in this recipe.
I hope you will be successful this time around. If you would like I have a prof or comm recipe you can try if this doesn’t work out for your taste buds.
Good luck & enjoy the rest of the day.
