(before they had the rotating plate.) am I showing my age??
This recipe for baked custard is awesome, quick and quite pretty.

Microwave at High 2-4 Min, until hot but not boiling.
2. In a separate bowl blend sugar,salt and vanilla into eggs.
3. Stir mixture into milk. .
4. Pour into 4 6-oz custard cups, sprinkle with nutmeg or mace
5. Arrange cups in a circle in the microwave.
