Ingredients (to make 4 servings, though I usually do a batch an a half)
2 cups milk
8 tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
6 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons water
First you need to prepare the molds and the oven. I use small coffee mugs for the molds. Anything that can be put in the oven will work. Spray the bottoms with a little bit of oil and set aside. Place a jelly roll pan (or whatever flat pan with sides you have) in the oven with a half inch of water. Heat the oven to 325 degrees.
Now the egg part. Easy peasy. Put the milk into a saucepan and put it on low heat. You just want it warm enough to melt the sugar. While that's going, crack the eggs into a separate bowl and beat it for a bit. Stir the sugar, salt, and vanilla into the milk. Making sure that the milk is just warm and not hot, slowly add the milk to the eggs and whisk together.
Now check the sugar mixture before adding the egg mixture into the molds. If the sugar is too runny, pouring the eggs/milk in will just mix 'em up and then you'll lose your awesome sauce that you risked your life to make. Put the molds in the 'fridge if they're too runny. Divide the egg mixture into your cups/molds.
Now put the molds into the oven on their nice jelly roll pan jacuzzi and bake for 35-40 minutes. Chill, and try not to eat them all in one sitting!
