2 cups milk
¼ cup sugar
¼ tsp vanilla or grated lemon peel, if desired
1 cup sliced ripe mangoes
Heat milk until it is almost boiling, then add sugar and salt. Beat eggs just enough to mix well.
Stir a little of the hot milk mixture into the eggs, then slowly add them to the cooking pot while stirring. Add vanilla or grated lemon peel, if desired.
Place mango slices in a baking dish, then pour in custard. Set dish in a pan of water and bake in a slow oven (150°C or 300°F) for about one hour. (Any type of oven may be used.) To test: insert knife blade and if it comes out clean, remove from oven.
Cool and serve. Makes 6 servings.
