Skills used – making a custard

A cheap, traditional pudding. Rich in calcium and protein for healthy bones and teeth. Can be eaten hot or cold. Usually served with cream, custard or ice cream.

 

Method:

  1. Self. Equipment. Oven on 180°C.
  2. Crack eggs into jug. Beat with a fork. Add sugar and beat with a fork. Add milk/cream and beat with a fork. (Add cocoa if used and beat with a fork. This makes a custard).
  3. Pour the custard through the sieve into your ovenproof dish.
  4. Butter (if used) a slice of bread and cut into quarters (make triangles or squares). Put each piece (as you cut it) into the custard liquid. Squash down with your fork. Sprinkle in dried fruit or chocolate chips. Add enough bread to fill the dish. Make sure the bread soaks up the custard liquid. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon/sugar.
  5. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden. When shaken gently the pudding should be firm. Meanwhile wash and tidy up.
  6. Cover pudding with foil
