Ingredients Info: 
  • lemon zest - use only the yellow part of the lemon (not the white pith)
  • caster sugar - also known as superfine sugar
  • cornflour - this works as the thickener in this recipe
  • milk - use full cream milk (not light or skim)
  • vanilla bean paste - or vanilla essence or vanilla extract
More Recipe Tips:
Extra Thick Custard - If you would like your custard to be very thick, cook it for an extra 2-3 minutes (but remember that it will thicken on cooling).
Storing -  Store any leftover custard in an airtight container in the fridge. 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'.
