Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, then mix with sugar and flavorings. Gradually stir scalded milk into egg and sugar mixture, stirring constantly.
Pour into buttered baking dish (9" x 9") and bake in water bath 30 - 40 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean.
* If you like more seasonings (salt, nutmeg, vanilla), feel free to add a little extra.
** This is a very small recipe, usually better to double or triple! It would then be prepared in a 2-3 quart baking pan.
