“This receipe has been in my family for years. Its like velvet in your mouth. You must handle it very carefully as would with any egg mixture. I usually do it in a ring mold, it makes it easier to prepare and also to serve. When cooking the custard place the mold in a pan of hot water while its baking. Do not over carmilize the sugar, caramel it over low heat till a golden colour, you do not want a burned flavour. You can decorate the cente once completly cool with fresh fruit to your taste.”
