    So easy, so delish! I used prepared nog which tasted very nutmeggy already, so instead of using nutmeg, I sifted on a layer of cinnamon. Love this overall, could have eaten the whole thing by myself, but...it's not very eggnoggy. It simply tastes like a delicious vanilla custard. Next time I'll use the nutmeg instead and see if that ups the eggnog flavor. Overall, love it, will make it again.  -  25 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a perfect custard recipe! I have been making custards my whole adult life and this recipe is among the best and easiest! I cannot for the life of me figure out what other reviewers are doing wrong with this recipe. It is fail-proof! Check your ovens!  -  25 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was very disappointed in this custard. It took an hour and 45 minutes to bake, and when the toothpick finally came out clean, the tops were so brown it almost looked like they were burnt--though, luckily, they weren't. While the taste was pretty good, the consistency was almost disgusting, eggy curds and watery on the bottom. Not recommended if you like real custards.  -  29 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
