  1. 4 eggs
  2. ¼ cup granulated sugar
  3. ½ tsp. salt
  4. 1 can (15 ounces) evaporated milk
  5. 1 cup water
  6. 1 tsp. vanilla
  7. ¼ cup sifted brown sugar


  1. Beat the eggs, granulated sugar, salt, evaporated milk, water, and vanilla together in a bowl.
  2. Spread the sifted brown sugar over the bottom of a 1½-quart casserole dish. Pour the custard over the brown sugar.
  3. Place the casserole in a pan of hot water and bake in a 350-degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool for 1 hour, then invent the custard over a plate. The brown sugar will form a sauce.
