Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pat the tofu dry with a paper towel. In a blender, combine the tofu and 3/4 cup sugar, along with the soy milk, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and foamy, about 1 minute; the texture should be relatively thin.

Lightly spray the ramekins with canola spray. Divide the custard mixture evenly among the ramekins. Set the ramekins on a baking sheet and pour 2 cups hot water around the ramekins to create a water bath. Bake until the edges of the tofu begin to pull away from the sides of the ramekins, about 40 minutes. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and refrigerate the ramekins until chilled, about 45 minutes.

Set the oven to broil. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar evenly over the ramekins. Set the ramekins on a baking sheet and broil until the sugar begins to brown, about 30 seconds; take care not to let the sugar burn. Serve with fresh berries.

    Firstly, the photo of the desert is the wrong photo. I watched the show several times, and the photo shown is the photo of tofu bites (or something like that).
    I substituted 1/4 tsp almond extract for the vanilla, and used plain soymilk.
    However, except for cutting back a bit on the sugar and switching up the flavoring, I followed the recipe exactly. The problem is that the end result was nothing like a custard. It was actually cake-like; it rose, then fell, a bit like a soufflé. I don't think I overcooked it. I cannot explain why it was cake-like.
    I am going to try it again but blend it for a shorter period of time. (I have a Vitamix, and blending the mixture for a whole minute may have added too much air). This time I am going to use the same amount of sugar as the recipe calls for but cut back on the cornstarch.
    I will re-post my results.
