Lemon Baked Custard - Gluten Free and Sugar Free

Sugar Free Baked Lemon Custard. These beautiful desserts are sugar free, gluten free, wheat free and grain free. Bake in a  bain marie water bath for a soft custard. |

Oh, why didn't I think of this? For many who follow the LCHF lifestyle, some like to eat dessert - where others prefer not too. It is a personal choice. For those that do like to enjoy a LCHF dessert here is a lovely recipe courtesy of Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' blog....... and well done her daughter.

"My daughter made these, and they were beautiful. They have no added sugar are gluten free, wheat free and grain free. The lemon zest is not strong but just enough to give it flavour. Bake in a bain marie water bath, and they turn out soft rather than a solid baked custard. Sugar free baked lemon custard are brilliant to accompany roast lemon tarragon chicken. They can also be eaten cold the next day.

800ml full fat milk
4 eggs
zest of 2 lemons
juice of 1 lemon
5 tbs granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice

Whisk the eggs with a hand whisk and add the milk and stevia.
Add the lemon zest and juice, whisk until thoroughly combined.
Pour into ramekin dishes which have been wiped with butter so the baked custard doesn't stick.
Place the ramekins dishes in a large baking/roasting dish and cover the base with water so it reaches half the ramekins dish.
Carefully place into the oven and bake at 180C for approximately 30 minutes, or until the centre is cooked and no longer 'wobbly'.
Remove from the water bath and allow to cool slightly before serving.

For those who are gluten intolerant and buy 'gluten free' products which are so expensive, this is a good recipe to try, home prepared and cheaper no doubt.

I cook custard in my electric pressure cooker. Very easy!

This has proved to be a very popular read and my thanks to Libby for the original recipe idea.

So many thanks to all who have read this (and continue to do so) and to Wendy at 'Fitteratfortyish', Jenny. Sherie, JanKitz,Jennifer and Galina for your comments.

Thanks for also reminding us of Franziska's excellent book, we have highlighted this a couple of times on the blog, one of which can be seen here

Franziska will be in conversation with Jimmy Moore on 24 March so we will be hearing more I'm sure.

All the best Jan
