I made this in a shallow baking dish, but it took mine way more than the suggested 30 minutes to set up. Mine took about an hour and 10 minutes. If you want to make this in custard cups, the 30 minutes may be long enough. This is a very nice custard with just the right sweetness. Click the photo to see a close-up.

UPDATE: I got a correction from the author of this recipe. The oven temperature should be 325 and not 300 like I had here originally. Start checking the custard after 30 minutes and bake until set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
