Introduction: Homemade Eggnog Custard

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

It is Eggnog Season! Stores bring eggnog out pretty early every year (starting in the early fall) and I have gotten really good about not buying it right away. So I waited until now so I could make Eggnog Custard. If you love eggnog and you love custard, then you are in for a special treat! This custard is rich and creamy, smooth and delightful and you actually taste the eggnog! This custard has 6 pretty basic ingredients and doesn't take long to prepare, the waiting for it to set up is the hard part. You can also add whipped cream and cranberries coated in sugar on top with a dash of cinnamon to make this dessert look all the more festive and special. If you want to see how I make this Homemade Eggnog Custard, follow along with these simple steps or watch the video.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 3 egg yolks
  • Weight Converter (if you need help converting the measurements)

Step 2: Combine Dry Ingredients

Place sugar, cornstarch, salt, and cinnamon in a medium-sized pot and stir to combine.

Step 3: Add Wet Ingredients

Add in the eggnog and egg yolks to the dry ingredients and whisk until combined.

Step 4: Add to Stove and Cook

Set heat to medium and whisk constantly until custard is thickened and it coats the back of a spoon, about 5-8 minutes.

Step 5: Strain Custard

Strain custard through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl and place plastic wrap on top, touching the top of the pudding. Place in the refrigerator overnight to set.

Step 6: Take Custard Out and Stir

Once custard is cooled take off the plastic wrap and give it a quick stir.

Step 7: Add to Serving Dishes

Add to serving dishes, top with whipping cream, a few cranberries and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Enjoy this simple yet delicious treat!

    We made this at Christmas time using Bud’s Eggnog and it was delicious. I think we added a dusting of cinnamon on top to add a little more flavor. Yum! Thanks! I think it will become a holiday tradition every year from now on.

    I'm not sure because you still need to add egg yolks to make the custard. Unless there is a substitute for egg yolks.
