Vanilla Custard

(1 Votes)
20 Min

Celebrate National Vanilla Custard Day any day with Mr. Food's easy custard recipe. The reward is a sweet and creamy, rich-flavored sauce to either drizzle over fresh-cut fruit or berries or to enjoy on its own as a delectable dessert.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups (1 quart) milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. In a large saucepan, combine milk, sugar, and eggs.
  2. Cook over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes, or until mixture bubbles, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir constantly for 5 to 6 more minutes, until it coats a spoon and is shiny.
  3. Stir in vanilla and remove from heat. Let cool slightly before serving.

Makes about 1 quart sauce.


Do not overcook this, or it will curdle. Serve it over slices of pound cake or use it in an ice cream maker to make frozen custard. Just cool it completely and chill overnight before using it to make ice cream.
