    I wanted to make my own pourable homemade chocolate custard to serve with chocolate bread pudding. It was delicious! I might try different flavours of chocolate next chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, etc!

    Looking for the perfect custard recipe? This is it. A gorgeous custard recipe I use in my restaurant. Freeze egg whites for another use rather than wasting them by throwing them out. Or even better, make into meringues, and serve with this custard!

    This homemade custard tastes especially delicious with lightly sugared strawberries! Though you can serve this custard alongside any of your favourite puddings and desserts. The vanilla bean makes it extra-special.
