If you have eggs, milk and some instant coffee, you can whip this baked custard up with little effort. Smooth and velvety, it is a delightful touch after a main course. To dress it up a bit, decorate with chocolate coffee beans.
- Preheat an oven to 170C. Grease 4 cup- size dishes.
- Beat together the egg yolks and sugar.
- Heat the milk, coffee and vanilla in a small pot until just starting to boil. Gradually add the milk to the egg mixture whisking constantly.
- Pour into your dishes. Place them into a deep baking dish. Pour boiling water into the baking dish until halfway up the side of the cups. Place into the oven for 45 minutes until the custards are just set. Remove and cool completely before serving.
- Sprinkle over a few chocolate coffee beans to decorate.
