This old-fashioned baked custard recipe by AliciaLynn on YouTube is an easy-baked egg custard dessert that is delicious southern comfort food. It’s a great way to use up a lot of milk real quick that may be going bad because this recipe calls for a lot of milk. There are times where I buy milk, and it takes a while for me to drink because I go for almond milk, which some people do not like. Also, it takes only 4 main ingredients to make this baked custard dessert. The baked custard looks so soft and has a creamy pudding texture. The cinnamon on top of the custard looks so good and I love cinnamon.



  • 6 eggs
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • nutmeg
  • cinnamon


First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk all of the eggs in a large bowl, and add salt, vanilla, and sugar. Mix well. Heat the milk in the microwave, and slowly stir it into the egg mixture. Continue to watch AliciaLynn tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.
