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!
|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!
