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

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

Method
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.
