    Derf's Note:

    This makes a luscious light dessert, a change from all the heavy dishes over the holidays. Looks wonderful in a stemmed glass. Any fresh fruit can be used.

      Really good - you need to add the hot milk to the egg/sugar mixture very slowly in order to ensure nothing cooks, and the window between "thickened" and "overcooked and slightly grainy" is very short, but the recipe works beautifully.

      Fabulous! I just love custards and this one, with a yummy vanilla flavor, was perfect over the fresh fruit. Notes: 1. The scalding of the milk took approx. 7-8 min. - and 2.Step 4 cooking took about 20 minutes for me. You really do have to stir the whole time so the custard doesn't lump. It's WELL WORTH it though. Thanks Derf. :-)

      Recently made this as a light dessert and enjoyed it immensely. I am opting to to assign stars because there was some chefs error involved in the preparation that make have contributed to the final results. I made mine with skim milk and Splenda instead of sugar. Add the sweetner after the custard was cooked. My one problem was that I think I may have over whisked the milk prior to adding the egg which gave me a somewhat lumpy result that was more custard than custard sauce. Though it did not look very pretty, the taste was great and I will certainly make it agian. When I do, I may leave out the egg white to allow the sauce to stay quite loose. Thanks Derf!
