Ingredients

  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons of custard powder (optional for extra thickness)
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Prepare Your Ingredients: Gather all the ingredients and have them measured and ready. This ensures a smooth cooking process.
  • Warm the Milk and Cream: In a saucepan, combine the whole milk and heavy cream. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until it’s warm but not boiling. Remove it from the heat once warmed.
  • Whisk Egg Yolks and Sugar: In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, granulated sugar, custard powder (if using), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Whisk until the mixture becomes smooth and slightly pale in color.
  • Temper the Eggs: To prevent the eggs from scrambling, slowly pour the warm milk and cream mixture into the egg mixture while whisking constantly. This process is called tempering.
  • Return to the Saucepan: Pour the tempered mixture back into the saucepan.
  • Cook the Custard: Cook the custard mixture over low heat, stirring 
  • continuously with a wooden spoon or heat-resistant spatula. Keep stirring until the custard thickens and coats the back of the spoon. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Do not let it boil.
  • Strain the Custard: Once the custard has thickened, remove it from the heat and strain it through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl to remove any lumps or bits.
  • Chill and Serve: Allow the custard to cool to room temperature, then cover it with plastic wrap, ensuring the wrap touches the surface of the custard to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for a few hours until it’s well-chilled.
  • Serve: Serve the homemade custard in individual dessert dishes. You can enjoy it on its own, with a drizzle of caramel sauce, fresh fruit, or as a complement to cakes and pies.

This homemade custard is a versatile dessert that can be served on various occasions, from everyday treats to holiday gatherings. Its velvety texture and delightful taste make it a favorite among dessert lovers.
