If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

This post contains affiliate links: what this means

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over on Amazon UK. Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Egg Custard.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

How many Calories are in this Egg Custard?

There are 132 Calories per portion in this Egg Custard, which means it falls into our Everyday Light category.

This Egg Custard is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet, and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers.

As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.

Step 1

In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, yoghurt, sweetener and vanilla until it resembles custard.

Step 2

Prepare two ramekins by placing them in a bain marie (baking dish, filled with enough hot water to come up to the middle of the ramekins) and pouring the mixture equally between the two.

Step 3

Cook at 180°C for 45 minutes until golden. They will puff up when cooked and will sink quickly when they’re out of the oven, but this is normal!

Are you sure the quantity of Sukrin 1 is correct? I have just made these with the suggested 4 table spoons and they were inedibley sweet Made them again with just one teaspoon and they were delicious! Will certainly be making them again but with just the one teaspoon of sweetener. Thank you for the idea and for all your other fab recipes.

    Hi Gill,

    It’s a matter of individual taste – some like things sweeter than others ????
