Homemade Vanilla Custard
I love homemade vanilla custard and yes... I have a thermomix to do it for me but I wanted to show you that it is so easy to make at home without a thermomix. With minimal ingredients and only 15 mins, the end result is a beautiful custard that you can eat warm or cold poured over your favourite treat. My favourite would have to be vanilla custard poured over sliced banana - YUM!!
HOMEMADE VANILLA CUSTARD
15 mins from start to finish
3 cups milk
3 Tbspn cornflour
3 Tbspn raw sugar (or any sugar you prefer)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. In a saucepan, add eggs, milk and cornflour. Whisk together until smooth.
2. Over high heat, whisk the mixture until it starts to heat up. Once the temp of the milk increases and the mixture starts to thicken, reduce to low/med heat and whisk until thick & creamy. This will take approx 7 mins.
3. Remove from heat & whisk in sugar and vanilla. Add extra sugar if you like it sweeter.
4. Eat warm or place into a bowl & refrigerate until cold. To stop a skin from forming over the top, cover with cling wrap & let the cling wrap sit on the surface of the custard as show in the picture below. When you remove from the fridge, it will be thick so you will need to give it a good whisk to remove any lumps & make it smooth & creamy.
