When it comes to the Christmas feast, it just isn’t complete without the Classic Brandy Custard.
It’s the ultimate accompaniment to Christmas pudding, and ideal for adults looking to get even more kick out of their dessert.
You can buy the boxed stuff for the kids, but this is worth making from scratch!
Heat the milk and cream in a saucepan on a medium-high heat for a few minutes until gently simmering. Remove from heat.
Using a whisk, combine the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour until pale and creamy. Gradually whisk in the milk/cream mixture.
Return to pan and place back on a medium heat. Stir using a wooden spoon for 6-8 minutes until custard starts to thicken and coat the back of the spoon. Stir through the brandy and vanilla extract.
Pour custard into a heatproof jug and serve warm.
