  1. Mix caster sugar, custard powder and about 4 -6 tablespoons of measured milk and mix well to a thinnish paste.

  3. For microwave cooking -- Cook for 2 mins on high the first time, take out and stir or whisk. Check you're mixing the bottom around. Keep cooking in 1 minute increments and stirring until custard is boiling but not overflowing your bowl. Usually 3-5 times/minutes depends on the wattage of your microwave. Serve hot or cold.
  4. For stove top cooking -- Pour milk mix into a saucepan stirring until the mix has thickened and gently boiled on a medium heat. Being careful not to burn on the bottom of the pot. Serve hot or cold.
Recipe Notes

This is not like store bought custard it is a little thicker so if you like runny custard of course add more milk.

It also will thicken a little more when cold.

Add more sugar if you wish a sweeter custard.
