  • Custards:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • Cooking spray
  • Raspberry sauce:
  • 1 (12-ounce) package frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water


1. Heat oven to 375°.

2. Place first 7 ingredients (through milk) in a large bowl, and whisk until smooth. Pour into six 4-ounce ramekins coated with cooking spray.

3. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack to lukewarm.

4. Meanwhile, combine the frozen raspberries, brown sugar, and water in a blender; puree. Cover and chill until custard is ready.

5. Serve custard with raspberry sauce.

    Egg custards are an easy and relatively healthy dessert.  Drizzle these custards with a homemade raspberry sauce for an extra flavor punch.
  • Yield: Makes 6 servings (serving size: 1 custard and about 1/4 cup raspberry sauce)
