lazy cooks coffee caramel custard

Hi!My sweet tooth is going to get me into lots of trouble with the doc. real soon.I always maintained that a person can only expand so much..and no more..like reach an optimal level.(of fatness)Anyway i am proved wrong 'coz i continue to expand widthways.Sad..sad...so to cheer myself up(!)..i made this caramel custard  ...with coffee because the rest of the members in my house are coffee mad.Need i say that this is frightfully easy to do?
INGRDS
 1.450 mls milk
2. 3 eggs
3. 3 tablespoons of sugar
4. 1tsp vanilla essence
5. 1tsp(heaped)coffee powder
6. 5 ramekins
7. 5 teaspoons of brown sugar 

METHOD
1.Beat the eggs and sugar in a bowl till golden and frothy.Add the vanilla essence.
2.Boil the milk..cool it just a little then add to the sugar-egg mix,beat like crazy.Add the coffee powder(this is optional)
3.Put 1 tsp of brown sugar in each ramekin,thereafter pour the custard in these,put into a baking tray,fill up halfway with water(the tray)..into a hot oven(180degC)for 45-50 mins.( stick a skewer  into the custard..if it comes out clean the custard is done.)


4.Remove from the oven and allow to cool.Thats it..you can turn it out..or simply serve in the ramekin.yum!.and brown sugar is good for you.....as are eggs...milk is required for calcium..so all in all a pretty healthy dessert!O K..maybe not...but i feel good 'bout it.
