A perfect recipe. Quick, simple and turns out exactly as a custard should -- subtle, yet rich.
By the way, scrambled eggs as mentioned in another comment would be a result of not tempering the eggs. (combining them *very* slowly) Follow the directions and this one turns out great.
Not a whole lot of flavor in this one. Would be better if served with a sauce. Kids don't really like it.
I searched books and the internet but could not find a custard that would meet my families dietary needs. (Sugar free, low fat and low cholesterol). I decided to adjust this recipe and see what happened. I used Splenda, 1% milk and Egg Creations liquid egg product and crossed my fingers. The result was AMAZING! It set wonderfully, was creamy and tasted sweet and rich with vanilla. My suggestion is to never rush a custard and cover the cooling custard with a film of plastic wrap so that it lays directly on top of the custard. This prevents a 'crusty film' from forming. Thank you so much for your contribution!
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 some more corn starch, it turned out well. Maybe I did something wrong, so I'll try it again.
I'm not a big fan of custard but this one is very nice. It has great flavour, not too "eggy". Smooth texture.
