The Classic British Dessert Recipe

Years ago my mom went to England and loved the way they served custard. They poured it from a pitcher (they made it thinner, so it poured.)  Ever since then we’ve made it often for a dessert. The creamy yellow sunshine like colour is so comforting and delicious. Some people like their custard runny but we like ours a bit thicker.

We made it last night for dinner and I ran and grabbed my camera to take some shots of this yummy treat and thought I’d share a new twist we’ve added to this.

Let’s get started, you will need:

  • a pot
  • pan to pour your custard into
  • a spoon to stir with
  • graham wafers
  • bananas are optional but make a nice addition
  • whisk

  • 1.  Mix 6 TBSP of custard powder and 6 TBSP sugar in a saucepan.
  • 2. Gradually add 5 cups of almond milk (regular milk is fine) stirring with a whisk until well combined.
  • 3. Bring this mixture to a full boil on medium heat stirring often. Serve warm or chilled (I really like it room temperature myself)
  • 4. Lay graham wafers on the bottom of a pan (I used a square brownie size pan). You can also add a layer of bananas on top of the graham wafers.
  • 5. Top with warm custard and let set.

It is sweet on it’s own, if you want it a bit sweeter you can top your custard with maple syrup for a really nice maple taste. Or you can use agave.  Honey would also make a great choice.

Custard is also great as a filling for cakes as it adds a nice layer of creaminess.

Have you tried custard and if not what is your favourite treat to whip up?  #IBN30
