Ingredients

1 cup Canna Milk
1 cup thickened cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornflour
1/3 cup caster sugar

Method

  1. Combine Canna Milk and cream in a small saucepan. Add vanilla extract to milk mixture. Place over medium heat. 
  2. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until hot (do not allow to boil). Remove saucepan from heat.
  3. Whisk egg yolks, cornflour and sugar in a heatproof bowl until well combined. Pour hot milk mixture over egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly.
  4. Return mixture to saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 15 to 20 minutes or until custard thickens and coats the back of a metal spoon (do not allow custard to boil, as it might curdle).
  5. Serve custard warm or cold over stewed or fruit, pancakes, crumbles, or just about anything you desire. Enjoy!

Tips: If cooling custard for later use, cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming. To make chocolate custard, add 100g chopped good-quality dark or milk chocolate to the custard at the end of step 3 and stir until smooth.
