It’s worth making real egg custard as it tastes so much better than the packet variety, and it provides lots of nutrition for growing children.
Pre-heat the oven to 160°C/325°F/Gas mark 3. Lightly butter a baking dish. Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla together in a bowl. Heat the milk to just below boiling point, add to the eggs and mix thoroughly. Place the baking dish in a bain marie, pour the custard into it and bake for 45 minutes or until set.
