OK, I'm guilty of going through reviews to find a common theme of changes others have made to come up with the best recipe the first time I make things. With this recipe, that was a MISTAKE. I added extra egg, and though still tasty, it had too much of an eggy consistency. Just not very smooth and creamy. The second time, I made it EXACTLY as written. Both kids said it was 10X better. TIPS: 1) don't freak about the sugar. I put my stovetop on 4, and just kept it moving as I was doing other stuff in the kitchen. Don't stir, just bring out your inner chef and move the pot around. It will get lumpy first, but that is normal. 2) I use a deep dish pie plate. 3) keep the dish in the oven so the caramel won't harden too quick when you pour it in. 4) Use a blender to mix egg, milks, and vanilla. 5) If the dish you use is close to full, be sure to put something under it. It does swell up, and will make a mess. I saw no need for the water bath. 6) don't change a thing. Make this as written!
