CARAMEL CUSTARD - T & T

The first time i had caramel custard was in manipal during my college days.It tasted slightly eggy but sure was delicious.Ones in a while i do get cravings to have one of these and so i was always on a lookout for the recipe.Thats how i came upon nupur's caramel custard recipe .I had prepared it long time back and it was really delicious ,better than what i had in manipal. Zlamushka's Tried n Tasted event was the right oppurtunity for me to prepare it again.Though this time i made some minor changes.I added 2 slices of bread instead of 1 and instead of 6 tbsp of sugar i added 7.

Thank u so much nupur for this outstanding recipe :).

Hi Ranji, caramel custard looks awesome:) I too made one recently because I wanted to use my ramekin cups :) I did not add bread though, I used cinnamon to mask the eggy taste, I got it from food network.
