Years ago my mom went to England and loved the way they served custard. They poured it from a pitcher (they made it thinner, so it poured.) Ever since then we’ve made it often for a dessert. The creamy yellow sunshine like colour is so comforting and delicious. Some people like their custard runny but we like ours a bit thicker.
We made it last night for dinner and I ran and grabbed my camera to take some shots of this yummy treat and thought I’d share a new twist we’ve added to this.
Let’s get started, you will need:
- a pot
- pan to pour your custard into
- a spoon to stir with
- graham wafers
- bananas are optional but make a nice addition
- Mix 6 TBSP of custard powder and 6 TBSP sugar in a saucepan.
- Gradually add 5 cups of almond milk (regular milk is fine) stirring with a whisk until well combined.
- Bring this mixture to a full boil on medium heat stirring often. Serve warm or chilled (I really like it room temperature myself)
- Lay graham wafers on the bottom of a pan (I used a square brownie size pan). You can also add a layer of bananas on top of the graham wafers.
- Top with warm custard and let set.
It is sweet on it’s own, if you want it a bit sweeter you can top your custard with maple syrup for a really nice maple taste. Or you can use agave. Honey would also make a great choice.
Custard is also great as a filling for cakes as it adds a nice layer of creaminess.
Have you tried custard and if not what is your favourite treat to whip up?
