Low Carb Baked Custard – Kim’s Club

Sometimes only ‘nursery food’ will do.  You know, times when you are feeling low and maybe just a little bit needy?  When you want something your mother used to make?  Well, this is my thing.  I adore baked custard.  But I wanted to make one that didn’t have much dairy (in fact you can make it with no dairy if you use a dairy-free butter substitute).  I also wanted a low calorie treat AND low carb ’cause that’s how I’m hangin’ these days!  Still, it really needs to BE a treat with a luxurious mouth feel.  I figure some of you might feel the same – so here it is!
