Real Homemade Custard

image

I’m sharing a homemade recipe for my ‘Real’ custard. Carton or powdered custard while they are convenient if you don’t know how to make it yourself though they are generally filled with an excessive amount of refined sugar. If you are like me and try and eliminate processed sugar as much as possible then here is an alternative recipe using either unrefined coconut sugar or even better raw honey or rice malt syrup. If you still like the taste of sugar then use the coconut sugar. Enjoy it with Apple & Rhubarb Galette, sweet pies, crumbles or on it’s own.

Ingredients

4 egg yolks

1/4 cup coconut sugar or honey

2 tsp cornflour

2 1/2 cups (600ml) full cream milk  or nut milk

1tsp vanilla bean paste or 1  vanilla bean slit and seeds removed

Directions

  1. Combine egg yolks, honey and cornflour in a bowl, whisk till well combined
  2. Heat milk ,vanilla in a small saucepan on medium/low heat till just boiling
  3. Slowly whisk in the yolk mixture, whisking continuously for 5 mins until thickened
