Classic Vanilla Custard 

In my quest to feed healthy food to my toddler twins , I have found egg to be my favourite ingredient. 

Custards are loved all over the world but I don’t find it exciting enough to just pour some powder out of a packet and serve it to my kids. 

This is a Classic Vanilla Custard made from the scratch using eggs. I have used my exotic Vanilla extract with seeds , which I got from Mauritius. I wish I had got loads of it . 

Classic Vanilla Custard 

Prep Time: 2 minutes 

Cooking Time : 7-10 minutes 

Yield : 1 cup (Serves 2)

Ingredients :

  • Milk : 1 cup (I ve used Pasteurised Cow Milk) 
  • Egg : 1 in no.
  • Corn Flour : 1 tbsp
  • Sugar : 2 tbsp
  • Vanilla extract : 1/2 tsp

Method :

  • Whisk an egg in a bowl. Keep it aside.
  • Take milk , corn flour and sugar in a saucepan and whisk well. Cook on medium heat till you can see bubbles along the rim. Whisk occasionally in between. Take it off heat once bubbles appear .
  • Pour 2 tbsp of this milk-cornflour-sugar mix in the egg and whisk . 
  • Put the rest milk-cornflour-sugar mix back on low heat and immediately start pouring the egg-mix slowly into it. Whisk continuously and cook till it thickens. It should take 2 minutes . Do not let it boil.
  • It should be smooth without any Egg strands . 
  • Remove it from heat and mix the vanilla extract. 
  • Serve warm. Or chill in refrigerator and serve chilled. Both ways it’s silky smooth and yummy.
