Caramel Custard with a twist

I love making Caramel Custard coz its easy to make, especially coz you wud surely have all these ingredients easily available in ur pantry & it tastes good too. I make mine a little different than the regular recipe by adding some Cream Cheese which gives it a rich creamy texture ........that's the twist in my recipe ;-) This was a tip given to me by one of my aunt's & I must say the Cream Cheese added to flavor of the Caramel custard.


Sugar for Caramelizing

500ml Milk

80gms Sugar (can be altered depending on sweetness required)

Nutmeg Grated - a pinch

6nos. Eggs

4 Oz Cream Cheese (Thaw it for almost 40mins)


In a pan caramelize sugar till golden brown by adding a tsp of water. Then pour it in a oven proof bowl & swirl it as you pour so that it coats the base of that bowl .Now in a mixing bowl cream the cheese , add the sugar , then the eggs, beat the eggs well & then incorporate the milk into it .Now stir it well & lastly add the nutmeg powder to it.Now add this mixture to the caramel glazed bowl. Bake in preheated oven at
325 °F for 45mins to & hour.Once done let it cool to room temperature & refrigerate.Serve chilled with a dollop of fresh whipped cream (optional).

Alternately you may bake it in a water bath to retain the moisture.
