Tuesdays with Dorie: Lemon Cup Custard

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Bridget of The Way the Cookie Crumbles. I tried to experiment with natural light for a few of these photos… Obviously, I need to experiment some more. 🙂

This a simple dessert to make and did not take many ingredients. I started with some “Bo milk” (whole milk) and boiled it with some lemon zest. I’m not showing you my lemon zest. Of all of the kitchen tools I own, I do not have a zester. So I had to attack the lemon with a cheese grater. Let’s just say, it was a mess. Will someone please buy me a zester??
So anyway, I boiled the milk and the zest and let it seep. Then I mixed together the eggs and sugar.

Then it was time to temper the two mixtures together and pour it into a water bath to bake.

I ended up baking my custards a little longer than the original directions stated.
The end result was a very eggy custard. It was fine but tasted more like a lemon flan than a lemon custard to me. It was fine, but probably not something I would go out of my way to make again. Mike didn’t try it but Bo was a fan. 🙂

  1. I enjoy your blog as well as some of the ones you follow. What happened to the list of blogs you read? It’s empty. Is it just my computer? Lisa

  2. The pictures made it look good but I am not a big fan of lemon stuff so I’ll just pretend it would have tasted like chocolate 🙂

  3. I’m glad your son liked it! They look yummy. A microplane is great for zesting and grating fresh nutmeg…I hope you get one for Mother’s Day!

  4. I tried Jamie’s Lemon Cup Custard last night. I thought it was very good not a real heavy lemon-flavor. It was very refreshing and light.

  5. Kudos for giving it a go – I figured this would remind me of flan as well, but I didn’t have the gag reflex for this. Go figure! Beautiful job!
