For this weeks TWD Bridget of The Way the Cookie Crumbles– chose Lemon Cup Custard on page 387 of Baking From My Home To Yours by the fabulous Dorie Greenspan.
This is a simple baked egg custard, spiked with subtle add-ins. I tried the original lemon and the coffee cinnamon variation.
I read the message board before trying this recipe. It seems for some this just wasn’t their cup of custard. Something to note are Australians are much keener baked custard eaters than pudding eaters. I am a big fan of the coffee cinnamon but Matthew (and Liam) were all about the simple lemon cup.
I used an immersion mixer to really squeeze all the lemony goodness out and since it was out, it did a great job of mixing the hot milk into the egg and sugar mixture.
A slow bake in a water bath and a rest in the fridge and these were done.
So go check out the other variations on theme out there on the TWD Blogroll. By the way loving the macro on my new camera. Still working it all out. But it is lots of fun.
