Working quickly, at the same time being very careful not to burn yourself, pour hot caramel into molds and spread throughout the base. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 350F/ 180C.

In a bowl beat eggs and vanilla for 2 minutes, pour into hot milk and stir. Strain the mixture and divide it into the coated ramekins /molds and place them in a baking dish. Fill half of it with hot water and bake in water bath for about 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in center of the custard comes out clean. Allow to cool, then refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
