A little bit of heaven

Okay folks.  I know it’s been a while since I posted a recipe but I’m back and I’m back to share with you a little bit of heaven.  Although this holiday I won’t be the main chef in the kitchen I did offer to bring dessert and I’m here to share.

Happy Turkey Day Mamas!




Homemade Vanilla Custard by the glass

Smooth vanilla-scented heaven in a glass

Makes: 2 ½ cups

1 Heilala Vanilla Bean, split

2 cups full cream milk

6 egg yolks

2 tablespoons super  fine sugar

1 tablespoon Heilala Vanilla sugar for sprinkling



1.  Scrape the vanilla bean seeds into the milk in a heavy-based saucepan. Add the vanilla bean and heat until the milk is hot but not boiling. Leave to infuse for 5-10 minutes.

2.  In a bowl mix together the egg yolks and sugar, then add the infused milk, stirring constantly.  Wipe out the saucepan and return the mixture.

3.  Cook over a low to moderate heat, stirring constantly until the custard thickens enough to lightly coat the wooden spoon.

4.  Pour custard into a clean bowl, sprinkle with vanilla sugar to prevent a skin forming. Leave to cool, then cover and refrigerate. Remove vanilla bean before serving.

5.  Serve vanilla custard in glasses or pour into a jug and serve with poached fruit.

*Heilala Vanilla is available at Bristol Farms in So Cal.
