Homemade Vanilla Custard

Share

This thick and creamy Homemade Vanilla Custard is my version of boiled custard or southern custard as it’s also known. It’s a very simple method, but the most important step is to whisk the hot milk ever so slowly into the eggs to prevent them from scrambling. This way, you will end up with a luxuriously smooth, creamy custard fragrant with heady vanilla.

This boiled custard recipe is a favorite of my kids, who like it with fresh berries, or slices of banana on top.
