Orange Zest Infused Custard
This is a simple and wonderful way to make a quick, light full of flavour custard for puddings and desserts or to eat puddled over a pile of sliced bananas – OH! OH! OH!
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook time: 25 min
Serves: Makes 500ml
Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat gently to a simmer.
Sprinkle in your zest, stir then remove from the heat, allowing the zest to infuse the milk for about 15 minutes, give it a stir every now and again.
Drain the milk and discard the zest. Pour the milk into a clean saucepan and heat again to a simmer.
In a heatproof bowl or jug, whisk together the sugar, egg yolks and cornflour.
Once the milk is simmering (not boiling), whisk a little of the hot milk into the egg mixture, keep adding a little at a time until all the milk is combined. Transfer back to the saucepan.
Stir over a low heat until the custard is thick and silky. Simmer for another minute. Then remove from the heat.
