This is an easy custard that you can make in the microwave.
I had a craving for custard but it was too much trouble to go out and buy one...
The heating time will vary depending on your microwave, so keep an eye on it and adjust accordingly.If you add a little hot water (not listed) to the caramel after microwaving, it will prevent it from becoming hard. (It will sizzle when you add the hot water, so be careful.)
