 Custard Trifle Pudding Recipe


1. We can start with making the custard, boil milk, meanwhile in a bowl take custard and add 50ml from the boiling milk or just enough milk to mix with custard.  Make sure there is no lumps formed. 
2. Add sugar in milk and let it simmer for 2 minutes.  Now add the custard milk mix and stir non-stop on low flame, milk will start to thicken this takes 3-5 minutes. Custard has to be thick with pouring consistency, keep aside.

Garnish with whipped cream and top it with strawberry or cherry before severing.  Isn’t that easy?  Make this a day before (don’t use banana in that case as it will change colour) or in the morning before your party.

Custard Fruit Trifle Pudding Recipe

~  If you don’t have any leftover cake in hand no problem, try this with jelly.
~ Use any flavour custard, I used pista flavour.
~ Choice of fruit is up to you whatever you can lay your hands on.  You can also use canned fruits but personally I like to use fresh ones.
~ You can do layering as per your choice like starting with cake/jelly, fruits and then custard.  In this case you have to let the custard set first. 

Have a nice day ~~
