Custard represents a variety of culinary preparations, varying in thickness based on the amount of custard powder or egg is used. Custard is mainly used in preparing deserts, either as its own dish or as a filling or topping for other items like banana pudding, lemon custard pie and coconut custard pie etc.
Milk – 2.5 cups
Custard powder – 3 tablespoons
Sugar – 3 tablespoons
Take a large sauce pan and pour 2 cups of fresh milk into it.
Now, place the saucepan on a stove burner and set it at high temperature.
Wait for few minutes until the milk starts boiling.
If the milk sits for too long, it may burn on the bottom on the pan, creating a burnt taste in your custard.
Therefore, use your spatula to stir the milk consistently, keeping it off the bottom of the pan, and constantly moving.
When the milk begins to froth and steam, it is time to mix some custard and add it to the pan.
In a small bowl, pour 3 tablespoons of custard powder, 3 tablespoons of sugar and the remaining milk. Stir these ingredients together well until fully mixed.
Quickly add the custard mix from the bowl into the large pan, stirring constantly while adding.
Mix the ingredients well until fully diluted and evenly colored. Once the mixture comes to a boil, remove it from the stove and set it aside at room temperature until thick.
Once you remove the pan, you will notice that the custard will almost immediately begin to thicken.
Now, transfer it to a serving dish, and either allow it to sit and thicken or serve it immediately.
