Out of a variety of desserts, I decided to make custard, as you can use custard for different dishes. You can make any dessert super smooth and creamy with this vegan custard. Sometimes, I even add fruits to the custard and have it. It tastes yumm. Of course, you cannot add citric fruits but, can add any other fruits to this vegan custard and enjoy the tasty dessert.
Vegan Custard Recipe
The recipe for making custard is quite simple, even a beginner can prepare it easily. You can prepare this custard in the flavor you like. For eg: If you like to have vanilla flavor in the custard, you can add vanilla beans into it, or if you wish to have butterscotch flavored custard, then you can add butterscotch beans or cubes to it.
You can use this vegan custard on your cake instead of cream, like on you can make a layer of it on you rhubarb and hazelnut cake too. Or you can also have a layer of this custard on your cupcakes or ice creams. Here, I have prepared Vanilla flavored custard. Let’s have a look at the recipe now.
- 1 Tbsp of Vanilla Extract
- 2 Cups of Dairy-Free milk (I have used Soy Milk)
- 1/4th Cup of Corn Flour
- 4 Tbsp of Sugar
- 1/4th Cup of Water
- 2 Tbsp of Lemon Juice
- A Pinch of Salt
- A Pinch of Turmeric (for the color in custard)
Step 1: Take a small saucepan and add vanilla extract, sugar, salt and milk into the pan and prepare a mixture out of it
Step 2: Now, take another bowl and make a paste of corn flour and water
Step 3: Then, add this paste of corn flour into the saucepan (with the mixture in step 1)
Step 4: Heat the saucepan on the stove top at a medium temperature and add lemon juice into the mixture
Step 5: Continuously keep stirring the mixture on the stove until it boils and thickens
Step 6: Once the mixture gets thick, take it off the heat and stove
Step 7: Now, add the pinch of turmeric into this mixture for the color in your custard and let it cool at the room temperature
Once cool, you can refrigerate it and then enjoy the delicacy. If your mixture isn’t getting thicker in a minute or 2, then add some more corn flour to it. You can garnish it with some cherries or vanilla beans on the top.
It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare this recipe. If you are using this custard as a topping on you cake or your ice cream or on a salad, you do not need to refrigerate it, just let it cool down and then use it up as toppings.
