Custard is one of those things I use for cakes, cream puffs, and all sorts of sweet dippings. It’s definitely one of my favorite but I rarely ever make it. Recently, I’ve been watching a lot of CreateTV shows and one of my favorites have been Fast Cooking with Jacques Pepin. One of his dessert was a berry custard which sounded so easy to make. The original recipe is found here.
I’ve modified it a little and it is still pretty good.
- 1 cup soy milk
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 2 egg yolk
- 2 tbsp of flour
- 3 tbsp of sugar
- handful of strawberries and berries
- a few store bought cookies.
The yolk was separated early in the morning for when I was making waffles for breakfast so I had it readily available.
Step 1: Heat milk with vanilla.
Step 2: Whip egg yolk with sugar. Add flour and beat well.
Step 3: When the milk is starting to boil, add to egg yolk and beat until it thickens. Pour back into pot and continue to boil until it thickens in consistency.
Step 4: Serve in bowl with fruits and cookies.
