Healthified Baked Baby Custard


Baked custard is hardly revolutionary, but removing the rude sugar makes it a nutritious option rather than a ‘treat’. It is far tastier than it’s commercial counterparts, which also contain artificial colours and flavours (even the ‘baby’ ones – not good for revving your little terrors up!) and it is more creamy and obscene than Prince.  Plus, it is truly so easy.

 Ingredients for a single serve:

– 1/6 cup milk (if you want a dairy-free option or a tropical escape use coconut milk)

– 1/6 cup cream (dairy free? Try coconut cream)

– 1 egg yolk

– 1 teaspoon maple syrup

– 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

– optional: fruit, such as banana

 Catch the packet custards later:

– get your oven going on 170

– combine the milk, cream, egg yolk, maple syrup and vanilla extract in a bowl and whisk until combined

– if you want to add fruit, cut it up and line the bottom of a very small, ceramic ramekin

– pour the mixture into the ramekin

– put the ramekin in a baking tray and surround it with boiling water (to about halfway up the ramekin)

– bake for around 30 minutes

– allow to cool before presenting this to your baby – clearly that ramekin will be bloody hot!

– pray that your baby doesn’t finish the custard so you can (it won’t happen)

 Bye bye sugar! You’re a dick,
