Baked Honey Custard

3/4 pint/425ml milk
3oz/85g honey
4 eggs
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Put all ingredients into a medium sized bowl and beat with an electric beater until frothy and thoroughly combined.
Divide the mixture between 6 greased ramekins and place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 300f/150c for about 45min or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve hot, warm or cold, topped with fresh fruit if desired.

From Vegetarian Times Cookbook.

These were a little disappointing. They were fine, but after making the banana honey ice cream from this book, I was truly expecting greatness. These would be wonderful with some fruit on top, or maybe some kind of dessert sauce. On their own though, they are underwhelming.

They are super easy to make. I think I will try them again, but with accompaniment next time.
