Recipe by Perfect Pixie
I got this out of an Australian woman's weekly cookbook. There recipes never fail. These are so simple and cute and even my dad ate one, and he hasn't touched custard since his school days--he can't stand the stuff, but he liked these!!!
- 1⁄3 cup custard powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 1⁄2 cups milk
- 2 cups boiling water
- 85 g strawberry jelly crystals
- 8 strawberries, for decoration
Directions See How It's Made
- Put the custard powder in a small jug then stir in 1/2 cup of the milk. Keep stirring until all the lumps have gone.
- Put a small saucepan on the stove, pour the rest of the milk into the pan, turn the heat to medium and heat the milk until bubbles form at the edge. Do not let the milk boil.
- Give the custard powder mixture a good stir, and then quickly stir it into the milk.
- Stir the custard until it boils and becomes thicker, and the pour the custard into a heatproof jug.
- While the custard is cooling a little, pour the boiling water into a large heatproof jug. Sprinkle the jelly crystals into the jug and stir until the crystals are dissolved and the mixture is clear.
- Put 4 serving glasses on a tray (they should be big enough to hold about 1 cup of liquid each).
- Pour the jelly evenly into the glasses, stir the custard then pour it slowly over the jelly, move the jug from side to side to make patterns in the jelly.
- Cover with Glad Wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours until the jelly is set.
- Decorate with strawberries on top.
