Lemon Custard

Serves 4 Prep Time 2 minutes   Cook Time 9 minutes   Rated:

I remember the silky smooth custard my mother used to make as a dessert when I was a child, and I am pretty sure it was the real deal. It took ages, but Ioved it; hot, cold or anywhere in between. This is no different, without the hours at the stove. You can be eating this fairly quickly after deciding you need dessert...scary really. It is also fantastic as a dessert accompaniment, but for my money? A bit of Coulis...and you’re in quickest ever dessert heaven.
