This custard is excellent with sponge pudding or with our favourite croissant bread pudding. It's pourable or spoon-able. To prevent a lumpy or scorched pudding use a heavy bottomed saucepan and stir CONSTANTLY. Do not walk away while this is cooking.
I didint have any cream so made this without it and it was gorgeous!!!! Very quick and easy! I'll never buy instant custard again! - 19 Sep 2011
Something else. I always cook my custards in the microwave. No burning on the bottom, brilliant! Cook on high for 2-5 mins depending on the volume being cooked, then cook at 70% in two minute bursts stirring in between bursts. - 24 Mar 2010
I made this with extra milk instead of the cream because I didn't have any. It was really tasty and easy to make too. Very nice! - 03 Mar 2013
