 Ingredients List

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3/4 c Sugar; divided
  • 1 1/2 c Soy milk
  • 1/2 c Mashed silken firm tofu
  • 3 lg Eggs
  • 1 ts Orange zest
  • 1/2 ts Pure vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Heat a medium saucepan of water over medium heat.

Meanwhile, lightly coat six 1/2-cup custard cups or ramekins with the
cooking spray. Place the cups in a large shallow baking pan; set aside.

In a small, heavy-bottom skillet, place 1/2 cup of the sugar. Heat over
medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar melts and caramelizes to a
golden color, about 10 minutes. Immediately and quickly, pour about 1
tablespoon of the sugar mixture into each custard cup. Be careful; the
sugar will be hot. Tilt the cups as you pour; the sugar will harden as it
cools. Set custard cups aside.

In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, process the soy milk and
tofu until smooth.

In a medium mixing bowl, lightly whisk the eggs. Whisk in the remaining 1/4
cup sugar, orange zest and vanilla extract. Then whisk in the soy-tofu

Evenly divide the custard mixture among the custard cups. Pour the hot
water into the baking pan until it comes about halfway up the sides of the
custard cups.

Bake for 1 hour or until a knife inserted in the center of the custard
comes out clean. Carefully remove from the oven and remove the cups from
the water. Cool on a wire rack about 1 hour.

At serving time, gently loosen the edges of the custard with a knife. Place
a dessert plate upside down on top of a custard cup and invert the custard
onto the plate. Drizzle any remaining syrup over the custard. Repeat for
each serving.

Makes 6 servings.

Cook's note: If desired, substitute skim milk for the soy milk and use 3/4
cup cholesterol-free egg substitute for the eggs.
