Next step in Cor’s Banting Christmas Trifle preparation!
Google ‘home made custard’ and you find several recipes.
All you need to do is ‘Bantingfy’ the ingredients:
1 cup Milk/Cream (or mix it half/half)
1 vanilla pod (or 1tsp vanilla essence)
2 egg YOLKS
2 Tbsp Xylitol
Heat the milk/Cream till just under boiling point with the vanilla pods (if you use essence wait with that till the end)
Seperately beat the egg yolks and the xylitol
Slowly, bit by bit, add the hot milk to the beaten mixture while still beating vigourously!
Put it back on a LOW heat for a number of minutes – stirring continiously. It will thicken after 5 or 6 minutes.
Recipe makes one cup of custard… Double/Triple the recipe as needed.
