This custard is excellent with sponge pudding or with our favourite hot fruit. It's pourable or spoon-able. To prevent a lumpy or scorched custard use a heavy bottomed saucepan and stir CONSTANTLY. Do not walk away while this is cooking.
The taste was good nice rich flavour I'd been looking for. However the consistency was a little runny. I slightly over cooked (made it grainy) while I was waiting for it to thicken up more. I'll perhaps try this recipe with more corn flour for a thicker consistency. This recipe is more like a thin pouring custard i like it thick. I also followed the easier way I've made custard, mix everything together in a saucepan except the sugar (the sugar makes it stick) whisk continuously while heating, then add sugar when it's thickened. - 28 Jul 2013
