When I was a child, growing up in England, my Grandma used to make that very self same recipe, except that she would put grated nutmeg on top. It would be served directly from the oval pudding dish it had been baked in, and was always a huge hit with us. Chance would have it that for years I have used that same recipe to make crème caramel, which is a great favourite of my husband's. It's an excellent recipe!
