Custard Recipe.

Always brilliant with a range of desserts. Especially cake. And disastrous should you get it wrong!


  • 2/3 tsps Vanilla Essence
  • 250ml of Milk
  • 250ml of Double Cream
  • 4 Egg yolks
  • 100g of Golden Caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp of Cornflour.

Step 1: Place the milk and cream into a saucepan and heat. Add the vanilla essence and stir. Bring to a slow boil and then take off the heat.

Step 2: Whisk the egg yolks and caster sugar and the conflour (this is optional for thickness... i like thickness. That sounds wrong :/) until pale and thick.

Step 3: Add this to the milk and pop back onto medium heat. Stir clockwise continuously making sure to add a counter-clockwise stir every 7th stir until it coats hte back of the spoon. DO NOT LET IT OVERHEAT OR BOIL!

Should take no more than 20/25mins.
