3 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins (optional, they will mostly lay on the bottom of the pan)
Mix everything in a mixing bowl, (a blender would also work). Place the items into the mixing bowl in the order I have listed. If using an electric mixer, place the mixer on a low speed and make sure the eggs mix well. Pour the mixture into a greased baking pan and bake in a 350 degree oven. The pan I use is an odd size, but a standard 9" X 13" pan would would work as well.
Note: I don't place my custard in a water bath like traditional custard is made.
Once the custard bakes about 30 min., becomes darker on the top, starts to pulling away from the sides, and has a couple of cracks on the top, turn off the oven and leave the pan in the oven for an additional 15 minutes. I like the flavor when the custard is cold, but it can equally be enjoyed when served warm.
I ordered a small magnet for my car. It arrived this week and here it is unpacked. What do you think?
Some blogs have picture days that only show farm pictures. I thought I would show you some of my pictures too.
Do you wonder where I found the corners, frames, fonts, etc. for my pictures? I use PicMonkey to do most of the work. I prefer downloading pictures to Microsoft Picture Manager first and toss out any that are fuzzy. Then I crop using Microsoft. From there I go to PicMonkey. The only problem is that PicMonkey is very slow. Sometimes I give up and open another window to start over.
We were talking at work a couple of days ago about blogs. We were opposed to most blogs just 6 or 7 years ago. Who wanted to read about what other people who have a life are doing? Who wanted to see others going on vacations and read about his or child loosing a tooth or what they ate for dinner? Well, it seems that most of us do. I have tried to make my blog a little more educational. I am not a journalist, as anyone reading this knows. My spelling and grammar are not as good as I would like, but I try. I hope it is not too difficult to follow my writing. You are all welcome to contact me if you wish. I do enjoy reading comments and you can also follow me by clicking on the button that says follow.
I hope you find this recipe to work well for you. I enjoy cooking when using my urban back yard farm. Blessings to you and yours! Dawnie
