Crying Over Corn Custard
Every time I make corn custard/pudding it gets watery. I do not cover it, and I put it in a pan of hot water to bake. This last time I put an extra egg in it and it still got watery. Do you have any idea what causes this? I also bake it at the recommended temp and have an oven thermometer to verify the temp. Thank you.

The only information I can find on watery custard suggests that it is caused by overbaking. I suggest you shorten the baking time by about 10-15 minutes. Check the custard and remove it if it is set up enough. If that doesn't work, you might try a different recipe. Hopefully the new version won't weep on you.
