I ❤ custard. It’s so easy, and so tasty. Best of all, it reminds me of my aunt and sitting in front of the fire in a country side home. Most probably it’s the just the memories that make me like it more.
4 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons butter
3 egg yolks
2 cups milk
4 oz sugar
2 ripe bananas [optional]
Over low heat, melt the butter. Add the flour, increase the heat, and stir to make a roux. Lower the heat.
Using a hand-held blender, beat together the egg, egg yolks, milk, and sugar. Add to the roux. Stir over medium heat with a wooden spoon, until a you hold up the spoon and it leaves a film of custard.
Slice bananas, toss it in, and drizzle with however much coconut you like!
Use 3 tablespoons flour for a thinner custard.
Use less sugar if the bananas are really ripe, since those are very sweet.
Instead of separating the yolks, you may use 2 eggs total and use 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream. If you don’t have cream, 2 cups milk is fine.
For use in a filling: Mix together 1 tablespoon corn starch, 1 tablespoon water, and 1 tablespoon of the custard. Add the mixture to the custard, stir together over medium heat until thick. Use a hand-held blender to smoothen the lumps out.
