Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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 :)
