  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

  • pinch of salt
 Kitchen Utensils

Custard Preparation 

  1. Heat milk over the stove at medium heat.  Do not boil the milk. 
  2. Combine sugar, flour, salt and the two eggs in a bowl  Mix the mixture in the bowl.  
  3. Add a little of the egg-sugar-flour mixture to the warm pot of milk that is on the stove.  Pour a little more of the mixture into the warm milk, stirring constantly.  Stir constantly to avoid the custard becoming lumpy and to prevent it from burning.  
  4. When the custard has thickened pour it into a bowl.  
  5. Next add the butter and stir it into the warn mixture.  
  6. Then add vanilla into the milk mixture. You don't want the vanilla to boil. So the vanilla should be added last.  
  7. Cover over the bowl of custard with plastic wrap.  Place the bowl in the fridge at least two hours. You can sprinkle sugar over the custard while cooling so that a skin will not form too. Cool custard completely in the refrigerator - a minimum of 2 hours.
