This is the simplest custard recipe from my aunt, Ann Irish. It is so fast to make and everyone loves custard!

Scald 2 cups of milk or cream. Slowly whisk it into the egg mixture. Add 1/2 t. vanilla. Pour into 6 custard cups and set in a pan of hot water (bain marie). Bake @ 350 for 45-48 minutes.
