    This is my recipe for homemade custard. It is low fat as it uses skimmed milk, and it is a doddle to make in just 5 or 6 minutes and turns out perfect every time. Even great to make ahead, then chill in the fridge and warm up in the microwave... absolutely yummy!

    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.

    Made with egg yolks and vanilla, it tastes just wonderful. Adding a little cornflour helps to stabilise the mixture and prevent it from curdling.
