Vintage Recipe For Grape-Nuts Baked Custard

Ingredients
  • 2 cups milk, scalded
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, sugar, and salt. Gradually add milk, mixing until thoroughly combined. Then, add vanilla and Grape-Nuts and stir until incorporated.
  3. Pour mixture into an 8×8-inch baking dish. Make a hot water bath by placing the baking dish in a large roasting pan filled with 2-inches of hot water. (You want water to come halfway up the outside of the custard dish.)
  4. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. “Serve plain or with cream or cool whip.”
