Portuguese Baked Custards


Grated orange zest 1 tsp

Caster sugar 1 tbsp

Egg 1 medium plus 1 egg yolk

Milk 200ml (7fl oz)

Ground cinnamon a pinch



Preheat oven to 180°C/160°fan/Gas 4. Put orange zest, sugar and egg plus egg yolk into a jug and whisk together.


Pour milk into a pan, bring it just to the boil and then gradually whisk it into egg mixture. Pour into two ramekin dishes and sprinkle with cinnamon.


Put dishes into a small roasting tin and pour enough boiling water into tin to come halfway up the sides of the dishes. Cook for 20–25 minutes or until custards are set. Leave to cool then chill before serving.
