Custard - Questions for UKers and maybe those from the RoI

What is it? Is it set or runny (crème anglaise)? After making the less than edible but structurally interesting Pavlova, my newest challenge to impress is "custard" . Can anyone help me? Thank you in advance!

It depends.

It's certainly nothing like creme anglais, whatever that might be.

That's two, but what is it? Is it like pudding? A flan? Or that disgusting thing that one Grandmother made similar to wallpaper paste but less tasty.

It depends on whether you're eating a custard cream, a custard tart, a custard pie, apple crumble and custard or cold custard out the tin.

Custard isn't a dessert sauce.

Custard is a state of mind.

Re: Custard - Questions for UKers and maybe those from the RoI

As DB said....it depends...

Custard can be used either hot or cold to pour over desserts (much the same way as cream) like trifle, sponge, spotted dick, apple pie or it can be used as a dessert base and baked or cooked such as egg custard, crème caramel etc...

Handy hint - To stop curdling, have a sink of cold water at the ready and if the mixture starts to split, plunge the pan into the water and keep whisking.

Yep, custard and innuendo, the cornerstones of the British Empire.

Re: Custard - Questions for UKers and maybe those from the RoI

So, there are something like 5-10 ways of making it and to impress I've to make them all.


Ohhhhh nooooo, this is going to be like the Pavlova disaster but with many versions.
