For the custard
  • 650ml Milk
  • 2.5ml / ½ Tsp Pure vanilla extract (can substitute essence)
  • 125g Caster sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Egg yolks
Instructions
To make the Caramel
  1. Place the 100g of caster sugar in a small saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. As the sugar melts, tips the pan pan from side to side to ensure even coloring.
  3. When all of the sugar has melted, remove from the heat and add the water. Stand back when you do this, it will spatter. Mix the water in to make a smooth syrup.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, egg yolks and caster sugar. Whisk this together until all of the sugar has dissolved.
  4. When the milk comes to a boil, remove it from the heat and pour it over the egg mixture, whisking continuously while pouring.
To finish
  1. Ladle the custard mixture into the ramekins.
  2. Place the ramekins in a large roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  3. Bake the custards in a pre-heated oven at 180c / 350f for 35-40 minutes until the custards are firm to the touch.
  4. Remove from the oven, remove the ramekins from the pan and allow them to cool for 15 minutes on a rack before turning out and serving.
