I cheated tonight & used bird’s custard powder (which has no sugar in it) instead of making it from scratch. I dissolve 2 tablespoons of custard powder in a cup of cold milk. Warm up 3 cups of milk in a pot & I add 2 tablespoons of rice malt syrup into the warming milk & stir to dissolve. Then I add the custard mixture in with the warming milk & the trick is to keep stirring as the custard thickens to prevent it from burning. Once thickened, remove from heat.. Pour into bowl to cool & it is ready to serve.
