This custard is SO super yummy!!!! Mr Ecohcick even wrote the instructions for me as I’ve never made this and he is the resident custard (and food) expert!!! This is great hot or cold the day it’s made or the next.
This custard tasted just like the store bought stuff but costs MUCH less!!
It cost us about .80c to make and store bought is $1.80 for the same amount so save yourself a trip to the store and $1 per serving. However of course the smallest amount you can buy is 600ml and this costs $3.85. Also make it whenever you have the urge!!
