    ellie_'s Note:

    This simple custard is great with sliced strawberries, bananas or other sliced fruit for a simple summer desert. The custard recipe was originally printed in Bon Appetit (May 1984) for 2 portions, but is very easy to double or adjust for number of portions you need. Refrigeration time is at least four hours.

      Very good, very thick custard. This reminded me in a way of panacotta - it is very firm, yet tender. It has a very subtle flavor - I think next time I would scrape in some vanilla seeds as well to punch up the vanilla flavor. We enjoyed this with fresh sliced strawberries on top and a sprinkling of sugar.

      a nice custard that is totally kid-friendly. Mine ate it up with peaches and nectarines and just a bare sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon over top.
