Realised AFTER cooking the strudel that we had no custard! Quickly found this recipe - definitely quick n easy and tasted great. Had thumbs up from 8 year old through to 40 somethings - all had double helpings. Would recommend as a great standby, thank you for saving the evening! - 09 Dec 2011

Good in a pinch. The taste was good - and i didnt have any vanilla, and i left out the butter, but the texture was not good. The custard went from liquid after 2.5mins in the micro to glue like at 3.5 mins @1000w so had to try to losen it with more milk. - 23 Mar 2014
