Introduction: 10 Minute Vanilla Stove Top Custard

I was craving custard fast! If you're wanting custard within 10 minutes; this tutorial with photos and videos is perfect for you!

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

Ingredients:- (For half a liter of custard) - Serves two -

2 eggs, seperated (Use yolk only)

3 heaped tablespoons of sugar (I used raw sugar, and two spoons to make it slightly healthier) 2 heaped tablespoons of plain flour (Use more if you want thicker custard, less flour for runny custard)

2 cups of full cream milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Optional - Use more flour to make thicker custard and then when finished, add 1/2 cup of cream to make a nicer consistency (I didn't do this)

Optional - Add cocoa (Add more sugar if you chose to make it chocolate)

Step 2: Method

The method is really important when making custard- the ingredients are so simple but it's easy to make a mistake and get horrible lumps

So first add your sugar and egg yolks to a saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon

Step 3: Method

Then gradually add the two tablespoons of flour and mix slightly, (We didn't need to sift the flour as if you stir it properly there is no need)

Step 4: Method

Then gradually add your milk to the saucepan

See video :)

Step 5: Method

Once you've added all the milk to the mixture then you can bring the saucepan to the stove and put over medium heat

Once it starts thickening turn the stove to low heat

And finally once it bubbles turn off the stove and continue stirring a little more


Step 6: Eat!

Transfer from saucepan to a bowl and enjoy hot or keep it in the fridge for later :)
