    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 250 ml milk
    • 150 ml double cream
    • 2 free range egg yolks
    • 50 g caster sugar (I like to use vanilla sugar)


    1. 1
      Put the milk and cream in a saucepan and bring slowly to the boil.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until pale and creamy.
    3. 3
      As soon as the milk and cream mixture comes to the boil, pour onto the egg mixture and beat well.
    4. 4
      Return to the pan and place over a very gentle heat (or in a basin over a pan of simmering water) and stir continuously until the custard has thickened. Serve hot.
    5. 5
      should you need to keep the custard warm, lay a piece of greaseproof paper on the surface to stop a skin forming.

      I have no idea what authentic English Custard should taste like, but I made this recipe to serve with another recipe of English origin, & those two recipes made for a very, very nice taste experience! Will be keeping your custard recipe on hand! Thanks for sharing!

      I made this for a friend when she had her wisdom teeth pulled and it was a huge success. Now I just make it whenever I need a little comfort food.
