Leche Asada

This is week 18 of the 2014 52 Week Challenge and the theme is Peruvian. I decided to make a Peruvian milk custard called Leche Asada. This recipe was adapted from here.

The custard is easy to make and is very tasty.

You will need
2 eggs
60 gm sugar
250 mil milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a mixing bowl beat the eggs until creamy and frothy. Add in the sugar a little at a time and whisk until it is dissolved. Add the milk and the vanilla extract and whisk again until all the ingredients are well combined.

Pour the mixture into ramekins. Place the ramekins in a baking sheet with a high rim. Pour water into the dish until a fourth of the ramekins are submerged.

Place in the top shelf of the oven and bake for 45-60 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil on high for another 5 minutes or until the tops are brown. Broiler vary a lot so watch the custard to ensure it does not burn.

Let it cool and then place in the refrigerator until chilled.

Serve cold.
