Baked Blueberry Custard

I love simple desserts. Yes, I love a piece of chocolate cake, a rich cheesecake, or even a piece of pie once in a while, but I also love the simplicity of a basic dessert that can be put together using just a few everyday ingredients.

This is a recipe I recently made and my whole family loved it. It is a basic old fashioned type custard dessert with blueberries added to it.

This is one of those desserts that I think you could even get by with serving for a special breakfast.

At least my family would love this for a special breakfast. When you add fruit to a dessert it makes it healthy right, so it totally qualifies as breakfast food?! ;-)

  1. My custard does not contain a thickener such as cornstarch so I wonder if this is more of a pudding instead of a custard. Can you clarify for me? My custard is only eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla with the final addition of a liberal sprinkling of nutmeg after the mix is in the baking dish. thanks, Judy

    • You are right, most custards do not contain thickeners, just basically eggs, milk, and sugar. This one has cornstarch though because it contains fruit and fruit contains liquid that changes this as it cooks. The cornstarch helps make up for the liquid in the blueberries and keep the custard the right consistency. I hope that helps.
