Good Homemade Custard. Great for various pastry fillings like crème patisserie or just to have as a warm snack!
Prep Time: 5 MInutes
Cook Time: 5 Minutes
Total Time: 10 Minutes
Servings: 2



175ml Milk
50ml Heavy cream (also known as double cream)
1 Egg yolk
25g Sugar (granulated)
3/4tbsp Cornflour
1/4tsp Vanilla Extract (optional but recommended)
1. Mix milk and heavy cream in a pan and bring to a simmer.
2. Meanwhile, mix egg yolk, sugar, cornflour and vanilla extract in a bowl and whisk until combined.
3. Slowly pour milk and heavy cream into the mixture in the bowl while whisking (so the eggs don’t scramble and you have a smooth custard).
4. Return mixture into the pan and stir over heat until you end up with a thicker liquid (usually when the custard reaches a boil).
5. Enjoy!
