It doesn't matter if you are a kid or an adult as custard is one dessert that is loved by everyone. The best thing about custard is that you can experiment with it and bring out new flavours. These can also be mixed with so many things which make this sweet dish unique. Stirred custard is one such example and if you want to learn how make this delicious treat then follow some simple guidelines.
  • Egg yolks, beaten - 5
  • Milk - 1 ½
  • Sugar - ¼ cup
  • Vanilla - 1½ teaspoons
  • Fresh fruit, such as blueberries or strawberries
  1. The first step is to turn on the burner and then put the egg yolks, milk, and sugar in a pan then use a spoon (preferably wooden) to stir the stuffing of the pan.
  2. It is important to stir continuously with the pan being heated mildly.
  3. Do not raise the temperature of the burner as the contents need to be stirred on medium heat.
  4. When the mixture coats the back of the spoon that is the time when you need to take the pan off the burner or turn the burner off.
  5. You now have to introduce the vanilla in the mixture but do so while stirring as well, this is important because stirring prevents lumps from forming in the custard which is a very common problem faced by many.
  6. You now need to cook this mixture on high heat, but keep sitting as you place your pan on the burner.
  7. This is the tough part as you will have to stand and keep stirring during the time the pan is on the burner.
  8. However, make sure that you do not end up boiling the custard.
  9. After cooking for 12 minutes your custard will be ready, take it off the burner and now pour the entire mixture into a clean bowl and then cover the surface with plastic to stop a layer from forming.
  10. Place it in a refrigerator and let it cool for two hours before serving.
  11. You can serve over fresh fruit.
