REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I have made a lot of custard and this is the best, most creamy and easier recipe I have found. A dear friend is battling cancer with chemotherapy and I make him a batch of custard frequently. It is very nutritious and easy to digest. He sometimes adds a scoop to his smoothies for diversion. This is his very favorite recipe and the one I will use permanently. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Excellent custard recipe! Unlike many custards, this one has almost no chance of curdling, and it's SO easy to make!!! Tastes wonderful, too. I made it for a party, and everyone loved it (one guest ate about four helpings). I'm a custard fanatic, and this one passes the test.
