    • Baked Custard Mix in a Mug

      Baked Custard in a Mug

      1 1/2 to 2 cup oven-safe mug
      2 tablespoons granulated sugar
      1 teaspoon cornstarch
      1 tablespoon raisins
      1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

      Mix sugar, cornstarch, raisins and nutmeg, then put into a small zip-type plastic bag. Line the mug with tissue paper in a coordinating color, then place the plastic bag inside the mug. Place the mug on a square of colored cellophane, add some ribbon to tie at the top, and add a gift tag with the following instructions:

      Baked Custard

      1 cup milk
      Custard mix from bag
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 beaten egg yolk

      Heat oven to 325 degrees F/165 degrees C.

      Bring the milk to a simmer in a medium pan.

      Mix well the custard mix from the bag with vanilla extract and egg yolk. Add 1 tablespoon of the milk to the powder, mix well, then slowly add the remaining milk.

      Pour the mix into the mug, and bake for 15 minutes.

      Hey Buddy,

      Easy fix... rinse with vinegar.

      Exact method varies with dishwasher model. I just open mine up and throw in half a cup.
