Individual custards, made from scratch with a hint of orange and clove, are creamy and delicious when topped with a bit of raw sugar then heated for a crunchy topping.


Serves: 4 

  • 200ml milk
  • 100ml thickened cream
  • zest of one small orange
  • small pinch ground clove, to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g soft dark brown sugar
  • raw sugar, for sprinkling (optional)

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.
  2. In a saucepan over medium stir together the milk, cream, orange zest and clove then bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together eggs and brown sugar. Slowly stir this egg mixture into the milk mixture. Fill four custard dished with mixture then place into a baking dish 1/2 full of water. Cover in tin foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes until set. Sprinkle tops with raw sugar then place on top rack under the griller for 3-5 minutes until sugar is caramelised.


If it starts to become lumpy while combining milk mixture with egg mixture, just run it through a sive.
