Extra Rich Caramel Custard

Heat a cup and a half of full cream milk till warm. Add half a cup of condensed milk to it. Taste if more sweetening is needed. Add more condensed milk if needed to sweeten more. Beat 3 eggs with a tsp of vanilla. Don't overbeat. Take warm milk and rapidly mix the egg mixture with the milk mixture. I find adding a tbsp of store brought custard powder to this add to the taste.

Heat 3/4 cup of sugar and a few drops of water till sugar dissolves. Swirl around the pan to ensure even heating. Once the sugar caramelises to a golden color take off heat and pour in the baking dish you will be making custard in. Swirl to cover the entire surface of the pan. Once the caramel sets pour the custard mixture in the baking dish.

Bake in a Bain Marie- Fill a larger dish with water till the level reaches half way up the baking dish. Cover the baking dish with foil. Bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees or till done.

Variations you can have by adding one of these to the custard mixture:
lemon zest
Ginger powder
All Spice and dark rum
orange zest
