  1. Fill the lower pan of a double boiler 1/3 full of water, and bring to a low boil. Pour milk into upper pot, and place over boiling water. Heat until small bubbles form around the edges of the milk. Stir in sugar, and continue stirring until it dissolves.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the eggs until light yellow. Remove about 1/2 cup hot milk, and gradually stir it into the eggs. Slowly mix the egg mixture into the milk in the pan.
  3. Mix together cornstarch and water; slowly stir into custard. Bring custard to a boil, and remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Serve warm or chilled.

This was a great recipe! It took fifteen minutes to make, and satisfied the whole families hunger for high quality!

I found this custard very bland; it tastes like cornstarch.

Absolutely Perfect! Came out perfectly first time.

I used this custard in a trifle dessert (layered cake dessert with cake, custard, and fresh fruit). I had to scoop out scrambled eggs from the custard mixture, but after doing that and adding so...

I'm not a big fan of custard but this one is very nice. It has great flavour, not too "eggy". Smooth texture.

If you know what you're doing, you won't have any problem with the eggs. I have made this on several occasions with no problems. It's delicious!
