Fried Custard with Spiced Passionfruit Syrup

6-8 Prep Time 30 minutes   Cook Time 30 minutes   Rated:

I am not sure what came over me. I think I was reading something and there was a reference to fried custard. As a custard lover since childhood (and what can ever get worse by deep frying it??) I was immediately intrigued. So we had it on our list for a few weeks and didn't get around to it as we have been really busy.

Still, we finally did and although the first test didn't work, it wasn't awful. It just sort of fell apart, but we still loved it. We tweaked, we played, we got it right and you can send me flowers or money! Happy with either. If I could give it a 6 star rating (above) I would! This is so delicious. You do need to be a bit careful with the frying part, but you will love the dessert. It is very special. Very Insider Clubby! That syrup alone is worth drinking. (Just ask Bree who has a recipe coming up for a Mojito, watch this space, using the syrup). Anyway, we knew we needed to film it. So have fun, download the recipe, have a look at the video and get it happening. I would love to see your results. Make sure you tag me!

Happy Mixing!
