Quick & Easy Fresh Custard

This really quick and easy fresh custard is just brilliant, I use it on all my desserts. However it is really tasty on it's own too. The original recipe is for a microwave oven, so feel free to click the link below if it's you preferred choice.

Recipe adapted from All Recipes

Makes roughly 600ml

40g Cornflour
50g Caster sugar
450ml milk
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
50g Butter
1 tsp Vanilla extract

Combine cornflour and sugar in a medium sized saucepan.
Gradually whisk in milk. Place on a medium heat, bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring continuously until thick and shiny. Remove from the heat and gradually beat half the hot cornflour mixture into the eggs - this prevents the eggs from curdling. Transfer the egg mixture back into the saucepan, whisk and return to the heat.

Whisking continuously cook over a medium heat until warmed through. Do not boil

Whisk in butter and vanilla. Serve immediately.
