Classic Vanilla Custard is one of my favourite desserts from my childhood. Milk, cream, vanilla and egg yolks are combined to make a thick, rich mixture that can be served hot or cold, poured over pies, puddings or cakes, or simply served by itself - give it a go!


Egg yolk 6
Milk 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (375 ml)
Whipping cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Vanilla extract/2 vanilla pods 2 Teaspoon
Castor sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (Super Fine White Sugar)
Cornflour 2 Teaspoon (cornstarch)



Heat a large saucepan with milk, whipping cream, vanilla extract and stir for 10 minutes on low heat.

Allow to cool and strain into heatproof jug.

In a large bowl, combine egg yolks, castor sugar, corn starch and whisk well.

Add milk mixture and mix well.

Stir the mixture over medium heat for 5-10 minutes and allow to thicken.

Chill until serving.



Serve and enjoy!
