It's officially that time of year, the holiday season. Although I'm not done with school yet, I'm totally feeling into the season. One of my favorite holiday traditions is making (and of course eating) baked goods! As the weather gets colder it becomes even more fun to stay inside and cook and bake. One of my first recipes of this holiday season is something new and I had to share it, Baked Custard.
I wanted to make this recipe a little different than your transitional baked custard so I added in a few crunchy things, like dates, and Post Grape Nuts® that made it even better. In addition to sponsoring this post they've also done a partnership with Sing® the movie, which reminds me of another great holiday tradition in my family, going to the movies. But about that recipe.
1 1/2 cups Grape-Nuts
1/2 Stick Butter
1 Tbs Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1/4 Cup Dates
2 Tablespoons Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 380 degrees. Melt butter and coconut oil and mix with the grape-nuts. Beat eggs, sugar, and milk until they're well blended. Then add the cereal mix in and blend well, adding in the rest of the materials as you go. Then pour the whole mixture into into a one quart baking dish, and place this dish in a larger baking dish. Fill the second dish half way with water. This might be a little confusing if you haven't made baked custard before so I've put a picture below, to show you.
And now for something a little fun! There's actually a SING© Movie Sweepstakes where you can win a $100,000 grand prize as well as over 200 instant win prizes. So what are you waiting for go ENTER
