1/4 cup + 1/3 cup sugar, divided
1 tablespoon water
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4  4-ounce ramekins

Preheat oven to 350°

In a heavy-bottom saucepan heat 1/3 cup sugar and water over medium until melted and a light caramel colored, swirling pan occasionally
immediately pour caramel into ramekins and set aside

Whisk together eggs, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar until well blended
whisk in milk and vanilla
pour custard mixture into ramekins

Place filled ramekins into hot-water-filled roasting pan
bake 35-40 minutes or until center of custard is just set
remove ramekins from water/roasting pan and cool completely
cover with plastic wrap
refrigerate 4 hours or until custard is well chilled

Loosen the custard from the ramekin with a small spatula, paring, or butter knife run along the edge
invert onto a plate and serve

These are great made in small mason jars for brown bag meals as well.

It's #latke season one and all! Happy #hannukah to you and yours. A #smallbatch of course. #audreycancook #latkelove I bought a fake tree and it's a Coast Redwood. Let the #decorating begin. #christmas in #California #christmastree #decorations #nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook
