Homemade Custard

Here’s my go-to homemade custard recipe that I used when my kids were babies.  It’s made FROM SCRATCH. It is absolutely delicious.

You can store it in the fridge once cooled and will stay ok in there for about a week. You can adjust the amount of sugar, but it will affect the taste.

Also a great recipe for dessert to have on it’s own, or with your favourite ice cream.


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornflour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter



Step One
Combine sugar, cornflour, salt and egg yolks in a pot. Using a whisk, stir together. Once combined, slowly add 3 cups of milk. Heat on the stove until boiling and continue stirring until the custard thickens up.

Step Two
Once it has reached a thick consistency, remove from the element and add the tablespoon of butter (and vanilla if you want).  Stir until mixed and then VOILA!  You’re done.

Optional: adding a couple of teaspoons of vanilla.
