Fruity Custard

Posted by Quinn at Monday, September 22, 2008


Fruits are crazily cheap lately. 3 punnets of strawverries for AUD2! 10 real sweet oranges and 8 kiwis for a dollar each. Crazy!

I can't think of any other better way to better serve the fruits after dinner apart from serving them with some cold custard. I have in a plate a couple of orange segments, a couple of berries, slices of kiwi, a slice of juicy mango and some bananas rounds. I spread some custard on 5 plates and arrange fruits on top of them and have them chilled well before serving. Simple and fuss free!

1 cup cold milk
1 tbsp custard powder + 2 tbsp cold milk from the 1 cup milk
1 tbsp sugar

Any combinations of fruit you can think of

Mix milk with custard powder and set aside.
Scald the milk and sugar until sugar totally dissolve.
When you see bubbles forming at the edges of the pot, stir in the custard mixture and stir again.
Do each and every step on lowest heat setting.
When mixture thickens to desired consistency, turn off the heat and chill well before using.

That's it!

Dear MinHuei, I'm using Bird's Custard Powder. I got it from a specialty store in Moorabbin. I've tried using Coles Homebrand 1 and it tasted alright to me. Normal custard powder is different from instant custard powder. I hope this helps and thanks for dropping by.
