Ingredients

Sugar

cup(s)

Mineral water

Tbsp

Sugar

½ cup(s)

Cornstarch

1 Tbsp

Fat free evaporated milk

1 Tbsp

Egg white(s)

2 large

Vanilla extract

1 tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small, heavy-bottom saucepan, mix 1/3 cup sugar with water. Cook over medium-high heat until golden brown to make caramel. Quickly pour into bottoms of 4 small ramekins.
  3. In a saucepan, whisk together remaining 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in milk and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.
  4. Whisk egg whites and vanilla together. Very gradually stir hot milk into egg whites to form custard.
  5. Pour custard into ramekins. Set ramekins in a shallow baking dish and pour hot water around them, about 1 inch up sides of ramekins.
  6. Bake until firm and puffy, about 30 minutes. Remove ramekins from water and chill before serving. To serve, run a knife around sides of each ramekin and invert custards onto dessert plates.
