Baked custard with summer berries

My version of custard is thick and sweet. The texture of chilled dessert resembles creme brulee. Baked with a a handful of summer berries, it's a perfect treat for the end of summer. I went for a mixture of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries to break the sweetness of the cream.

Method
  • Heat cream and sugar in a small saucepan until almost boiling. Set aside and let cool slightly.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the eggs with sugar until thick and pale, but not fluffy.
