Farm Fresh Swedish Baked Custard

Growing up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, there were always fresh eggs available from our chickens. When eggs were especially plentiful, Grandma would always make this baked custard to "use them up." What's nice about this recipe is that the leftover 2 egg whites are wonderful to save and freeze, for use in boiled frostings or angel food cake, so nothing is wasted. This is a very "eggy" tasting, buttercup-yellow custard, which is why you're making custard, after all. I've made it with milk, Half & Half and whipping cream, but always go back to "just" milk. It keeps the dessert light and simple; when a heavier milk product is used, it becomes too heavy and too much like creme brulee, not that there's anything wrong with that! LOL But, baked egg custard should taste light, sweet, and egg-rich, with you always wanting more! We eat it warm, cool, cold. We eat it plain or with Swedish Stewed Fruit served on top. Any way that we can enjoy this baked custard, we do!
