When the weather gets cold, I like to serve warm custard with some of my favourite fruits or chocolate pudding.

It gives me a warm feeling. But if you like it cold, the taste is equally good. What most pleases me is that custard has a magic turning my family to like eating more fruits.

I followed this recipe step by step without any failure at the first time. I like to serve it with seasonal fruits with pastry.

Yield: 1 cup

Vanilla Custard

  • 125 ml milk
  • 125 ml thickened cream
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 35 gm caster sugar
  • 2 tsp cornflour / corn starch

How To Make Vanilla Custard01

How To Make Vanilla Custard02

  1. In a small saucepan, combine milk and thickened cream. Use a sharp knife to slice vanilla pod in half lengthways and scrape out the seeds. Add seeds into the milk mixture. Cook over medium heat and stir constantly for about 5 minutes, until hot. But don’t allow to boil. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour well. Strain hot milk mixture over egg yolk mixture, stirring continuously. Drain through a fine sieve into the saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for about 15 to 20 minutes, until custard thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Don’t boil it anyway. Let it cool down. Serve with strawberries or any favourite fruits. Very delicious.

  • Vanilla pod is available at supermarkets or bakery shops. Or you might replace it with ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • Don’t allow the custard to boil as it might curdle as a result the texture won’t be smooth.
  • The leftover egg whites can be used for making coconut macaroons, or steamed ginger milk custard.
