You can jazz this up with orange zest or liqueur, for example – they can really make an impact and turn a dessert into something special.
So easy! I added some vanilla essence and it's very yummy. Update: I keep finding excuses to make this! Mmmmm... - 16 Aug 2011
Altered ingredient amounts. 2 tsp cornflour was ample and you can use cream instead of flour to make it even richer! - 19 Sep 2010
I made this yesterday as I realized that I didn't have a tin of custard to go with our dessert after Sunday lunch, and I must say that this was the quickest, easiest most delicious custard ever and won't buy another tin again. I just added 3 tps of cornflour which I found was enough and 1 tsp of vanilla essence. My daughter didn't waste the egg whites either as she made meringues which are also on this site - 20 Feb 2017
