    I've only just read this.

    The the custard must have been over-cooked. When this happens the protein in the eggs tightens up and squeezes the fluid out, this is called syneresis. You sometimes see this in scrambled eggs that have been cooked for too long, the creamy egg mixture turns into blobbly eggy lumps and there is liquid released into the pan.

    So just a little less heat or less cooking and it will be fine next time
