Homemade Custard Recipe
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 large egg yolks, lightly whisked
  • 2 tbsp. butter, sliced into small pieces
  • 1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  1. In a non-stick saucepan, combine sugar, flour and salt. On low heat, whisk milk into flour mixture until smooth. Raise heat to medium and bring mixture to just a slight boil.
  2. Whisk constantly for 3-5 minutes until mixture thickens.
  3.  Remove from heat and whisk one cup of mixture into egg yolks – return to saucepan. Whisk constantly for 2-3 minutes while simmering until mixture slightly thickens.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla, stir until butter is completely melted.
  5. Sit a fine sieve colander atop a glass bowl and strain custard. Place plastic wrap directly on top of custard to keep skin from forming.
  6. Refrigerate approximately one hour until cool.
