    BecR's Note:

    This is a lovely rich creamy classic custard that is wonderful layered in trifles (see my Strawberries and Cream Trifle), or in goblets with White Wine Jelly (White Wine Jelly), or served with cake and fruit. Superb! I sometimes add the seeds from a vanilla bean for extra richness. Really wonderful. I hope you enjoy!
