    About this recipe: A truly luscious eggnog where the eggs are fully cooked into a custardy mixture, then combined with cream and rum for a Christmas tipple like no other!

    Serves: 10 

    • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 600ml milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 250ml double or whipping cream
    • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 125ml rum (optional)
    • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr30min 

    1. In a heavy saucepan, combine eggs, granulated sugar and salt; gradually whisk in milk. Stirring constantly, cook for 10 to 15 minutes over medium heat, until mixture just coats a metal spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Place saucepan in a tin of ice water to let mixture cool, then transfer to the fridge to chill completely (this can be done a day ahead of time).
    2. In a chilled bowl, combine cream, icing sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Beat until stiff peaks form. Stir in rum, if using. Fold whipped cream mixture into the cooled egg mixture. Pour into serving bowl, and sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve immediately.


    If you don't add rum, you may want to add some milk to the eggnog to thin it out a bit.
