Made this at your suggestions to top Edna's Apple Crumble (Aka. Apple Crisp) and was so pleased; first time I've ever had an English Custard and loved the smooth, creamy vanilla flavor. I followed the directions to the letter and had no trouble at all and was so pleased with the results. Can eat this plain with no extras or dress it up in so many ways. A true keeper

Wonderful custard recipe and worked like a charm in the cream puff recipe, which I filled with this custard. I made 1/2 of the recipe and followed the directions with great results. This is a very mild tasting custard, which worked great within the cream puff pastry/chocolate glaze combination, but next time if using alone, I might add a bit more vanilla, but that is just personal preference. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Holiday Tag Game.

This is so easy to make. You will never eat pudding from a plastic cup bought by the grocery store again.

Such a creamy and decadent dessert. My family really enjoyed this, especially with some berries we purchased yesterday. And it is much lighter than I thought it would be, but I guess that's what happens when you enjoy an English dessert.

So very proper that I feared eating this might require impeccable manners and I know these things do matter. Lip smacking and I need to apologize to my parents. Made for ZWT#8~Great Britain.

I have just made this now - I used skim milk and had to use cornstarch combined with custard powder as I doubled the recipe and was really low on cornflour and we all like our custard thick in this family. I added some actual vanilla seeds so it has that pretty flecked look. Made and enjoyed with fruit salad for ZWT8.

Lovely custard recipe. It isn't too sweet, so we thought it paired nicely with Apple Crumble. We will definitely make this again!

A Very Proper English Custard
