Baked Custard - very easy

Oven 140 deg. C (ish)

400ml double cream
4 whole eggs - beaten
Few drops of a good vanilla essence
Maple Syrup or Honey to sweeten

Mix all ingredients together and place into a shallow ovenproof dish.
Place this dish into a larger pan and half fill with water.  (Bain-Marie)
Bake custard until set.(approx. 45 mins.)
Serve cold, with either stewed fruit or a fruit puree - (strawberries are delicious with this.)

You could also pre-cook some fruit then pour the custard over the top and bake.

I do like baked custard and so easy to make too. Sadly it will be off my menu for the next 3 months as I'm trying to reduce my cholesteroll. Roll on August :)
