You guys this recipe was a pure accident. Once I knew it was going to be bowl licking good I grabbed my camera so I could share it with you.
I was in the middle of making the girls lunch when I headed to the freezer to grab some blueberries for their fruit. My crazy brain thought “Hmm, these would be so yummy on some homemade vanilla pudding.” I never eat or make pudding. But I scrolled pinterest to be inspired. Then it occurred to me that the chickens are starting to lay more of those beautiful eggs. So I concocted a vanilla custard with those eggs and farm fresh milk. Since this is not overly sweet it would make a great breakfast option.
This is the simplest custard recipe EVER! You all know I have three girls underfoot and I have no time to make frilly desserts. It took 5 minutes to cook. I served it warm with warm blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Farm Fresh Egg Custard and Warm Blueberries
4 egg yolks at room temperature
2 cups of whole milk
5 tsp Arrowroot powder (cornstarch works too)
2 TBLS pure maple syrup
1/2 a vanilla bean
In a small bowl whisk the yolks, arrowroot powder, syrup, and the seeds of the vanilla bean.
Over medium heat warm the milk with the remainder of the vanilla bean pod.
Slowly add the egg mixture and whisk away. Turn up heat to medium high and boil for several minutes. Continue to whisk until thickened. It will be a creamy consistancy. If you want it thicker then add more arrowroot powder at the beginning.
Take out the vanilla bean and pour into a bowl. Cover and store in the fridge. Can serve it warm or cold.
Warm some blueberries or fruit of your choice and add to the custard with an extra drizzle of maple syrup.
The table was complete silence except for Sawyer saying yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum.She was allowed to have this since it was raw milk. Small amounts of raw cows milk will not upset her stomach. Plus, how could I deny her this treat when we were all indulging.
Just an FYI you may want to double or triple the recipe right away. Enjoy! And if you lick the bowl I won’t tell!
