Vanilla Custard Recipe – Have you made custard in your thermomix?
It was probably one of the recipes you saw during your first demonstration, and if you’re anything like me, haven’t gone back to make it since.
My kids are always asking me to buy custard, and I hate the thought about what “extras” are put into the custard.
At least making it yourself you know exactly what is in it.
- 60g sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 2 eggs
- 500g milk
- 40g cornflour
Place sugar in thermomix bowl and pulverise for 20 seconds on speed 9
Add remaining ingredients and cook for 7 minutes at 90°C on speed 4
Once cooked transfer to a serving bow and serve with fruit.
You can make variations to this custard, and use lemon zest instead of vanilla essence and pulverise this with the sugar, or add 20g of cocoa powder instead of the vanilla essence for a chocolate custard.
You could use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla paste instead of the vanilla bean. If cooling custard for later use, cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming.
Variation: 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.
