EGG CUSTARD

I grew up in a small village in south Trinidad. Most people in that area are really close-knit but my immediate neighbors are like my family. It feels like I spent as much time in their house as I did in mine!

Aaron *my neighbor closest in age* and I have been buddies forever! He loves my mom’s sweetbread and cakes and I love his mom’s pholourie and egg custard.

It’s funny how we would always know to show up when food was ready! With as much as we ate I’m surprised we don’t weigh 2000lbs! Miss Nelly makes lots of yummy things but her egg custard is the best! It’s so easy to make and you just need a few ingredients. The texture is smooth and light and not too sweet.

I’ve been homesick recently so I decided to make this to ease the heartache a little 💜

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cans evaporated milk
  • 1 can condensed milk (add a little more if you like a little more sweetness)
  • 1 1/2 tsp finely grated ginger (you can use more or less)
  • 1-2 tsps lemon or lime zest

Beat all the ingredients together until combined, bake at 375 F for about 45 mins or until the center sets. ( If you used the whole peel like I did, remove it before baking)
