From Creative Everyday Cooking. This uses frozen raspberries in syrup. If using fresh raspberries, just sprinkle with a little sugar before putting in dish.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees, lightly butter 9 inch pie plate or 1 qt shallow baking dish.
- Spread raspberries and their syrup evenly over bottom of the dish.
- Blend eggs, milk, cream, flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and vanilla together.
- Pour over fruit; sprinkle remaining 1 T sugar over top.
- Bake 20-25 minutes until set and golden around the edges.
I was really hoping to give this recipe a great review because I love the combination of raspberries and vanilla pudding. However, I found this recipe too "eggy". I also think a 9-inch pie plate results in a thin layer of pudding...I had to scrape it out rather than scoop it into serving dishes. This recipe might be better baked in a pie crust. I will continue to tweak it, maybe reduce eggs and use cornstarch in place of the flour.
I doubled this recipe and made two puddings last night to take to a potluck at church this morning. Unfortunately I will only be taking one of them with me. My DH and 2 older daughters all voted last night that we really should try one to make sure they turned out okay to take as it was a new recipe. That was their cover-up to "Wow! they smell so good." and "We might not get to try Mom's dessert". I love the fact that the custard isn't very sweet so the raspberry taste really shines through. The only issue I had is the custard tended to weep a little around the raspberries, so next time I will try omitting some of the raspberry syrup to see if that resolves the issue. Thanks for sharing your recipe KelBel.
A delicious, simple baked custard recipe. I used frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries) and sprinkled them with a little sugar as they were unsweetened. I used raw whole Jersey milk and very rich cream for the milk and cream, and double strength vanilla. I was able to whip it up and bake it while preparing dinner, then I let it cool while we ate. After dinner, I spooned it up and topped with whipped cream. It was lovely! I did go a little heavy on the berries--I used most of a 6 oz bag instead of only 10 ozs--but I loved the fruitiness of the final product. DH enjoyed it very well, too. DS didn't care so much for his, but he's not a berry fan (yet!). Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, KelBel!
