H and I made these little baked custards a few months ago. They are perfect for babies from 12 months old. So easy to make and sweetened slightly with maple syrup. For babies under 12 months omit the maple syrup.
We moved house over a month ago now and I am yet to have the internet connected – don’t get me started on that one! I’m syncing my computer to my phone in order to publish this quick post because my blog has been so neglected :(
Fingers crossed I will be back online soon but in the mean time, enjoy the video below of my little guy making baked custards all on his own.

Baked Custard For Baby
- 3 eggs
- 600 ml milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla (extract or paste)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- Combine the eggs and milk and whisk to combine. Add the vanilla and maple; whisk until the maple has dissolved.
- Add ramekins to a heat proof dish and add hot water to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake at 180 degrees C for 20 - 30 minutes. They should be still slightly wobbly in the middle. Allow to cool and serve.
Love that this has a video to go along with the recipe – makes it so easy! :) Thanks!
Thanks Sarah, xx

No babies around here, but I know some adults who would enjoy these. :) Love the video too.
Thanks Annemarie, yes I enjoyed a few myself. Can’t go wrong with custard!
Ooh! My daughter would really love this! I will have to make her custard this week!
Thanks so much Sara, I would love to know what you think xx
Super cute! He’s on his way!! Thanks for sharing!
He is Felesha, future chef or blogger maybe!

I’ve never made baked custards with maple syrup. Sounds like it would work really well.
Thanks Mark, I think it does. I try not to use refined sugar as much as possible so I think maple is a great option. I sometimes use brown rice syrup if I want to keep it fructose free.
What a great simple recipe! Can’t wait to make these with my nephew (he’s 2). He’ll be so excited to do some of the cooking after seeing your son making them.
Fantastic Brie, let me know how you go. H loves watching videos of other kids too. xx
Thalia @ butter and brioche
looks delicious and love the little video too! Xx
Thanks so much Thalia, they are always fun to make. xx
Bethany @ athletic avocado
These custards look awesome! I love how simple the recipe is!
I’m all for simple Bethany. Thanks for stopping by, love your blog name BTW :)
Hi, I’m making these for the family today :) The recipe made quite a bit, so how long will they keep for once baked?
Hi Hannah, yes I used medium sized moulds and it made 8. It will keep in the fridge for about 3 days.
Hi, I want to make this for my 11month baby. What kind of milk can I use? Will there is a substitute for syrup for 11month or shall we just completely omit the sugar?
Hi Proebe, Full cream crows milk in fine. I’m not sure how it would go with no sweetness though. You may like to try my sugar-free custard recipe instead.
Hi, I was so excited about these but I’m sorry to say they stayed in the oven for 50 mins and still runny :( I have a 6 & 4 & 2 yr old. We were all looking forward to these
I’m so sorry to hear that Michelle, I have made them quite a few times using the same recipe. Did you sit them in a water bath?
