    This was overall a good recipe. It is almost as good as one with heavy cream, real butter and a long baking time. You do need to mix a little of the hot milk mix with the egg to avoid bits of cooked egg. I also had bits of hard dry bread on the top like maybe I used too much? I also made a quick sauce of caro syrup maple syrup some spiced rum and some butter which I poured over the top. This helped with the dryness. I will absolutely make this again.  -  30 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
