I love to use vanilla bean paste in my custard because it gives it such a delicious vanilla flavour. But if you don’t have any paste, you can substitute it for 2 tsp vanilla extract.

You can eat this custard on it’s own, with stewed fruit, ice-cream, or poured over the top of your favourite dessert. It will thicken up as it cools, but if you’d like a really thick custard simply cook it for a couple of minutes longer.

In these photos, I had cooked the custard for 3 minutes longer as I wanted it to be extra thick. I then placed it into the fridge and after 30 minutes, used it to fill tart cases. A super quick and easy dessert!!

  • Zest 1 lemon
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 50 g cornflour
  • 500 g full-cream milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)


  • Place the lemon zest, sugar and cornflour into the TM bowl and mill on Speed 9 for 10 seconds.
  • Add the milk, eggs and vanilla essence (or paste) to the bowl.
  • Cook for 7 minutes, 90 degrees, Speed 4.
  • Serve immediately.


Use full-cream milk as reduced-fat milk will not thicken as well.
If you find your custard is too runny, cook it for an extra 2-3 minutes (but remember that it will thicken on cooling).
If you don't want to use your custard immediately, pour it into a bowl and place cling-wrap on top of the custard to stop it from forming a 'skin'.

    I had just made pavlova nests so had 8 eggs yolks left over and used these instead of the 4 whole eggs and it worked amazingly! So glad I’ve found a recipe to use up my egg yolks.
