Custard Desserts Faq's
The three main types of custard are baked custard, stirred custard, and pastry cream. Baked custard is made by baking a mixture of milk, eggs, sugar, and flavorings until set.
Pastry cream is a thicker version of stirred custard. Stirred custard involves cooking the ingredients on the stovetop until thickened.
The best toppings for custard are fresh fruit like fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries), chocolate shavings, shredded coconut, and fruit sauce.
The secret lies in combining egg yolks, sugar, and milk or cream over gentle heat while continuously stirring.
This process thickens the mixture without curdling the eggs, resulting in a smooth custard.
Adding vanilla extract or other flavorings enhances the taste, while careful temperature control ensures a perfect consistency.
