Custard takes me to my happy place. A place that is filled with fluffy white flowers and is quiet as a mouse, except for the hypnotic buzzing of the bumble bees. It’s sunny, but not too hot in my happy place and sometimes, just sometimes, there is a pristine white claw foot bath filled with silky smooth custard.
Have I shared too much? Surely I’m not alone?
This recipe is not the one I grew up with. It’s gluten and refined sugar free and it doesn’t set as thick as my mums, but it is definitely just as luxurious. I adore it.
Feel free to use pure maple syrup instead of the Rice Malt Syrup, but just remember that this will then add fructose into the mix.
