Vanilla Custard

Yield 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Combine eggs and sugar in top of a double boiler; beat well. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Gradually stir in milk and whipping cream. Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly with a metal spoon, 10 minutes or until mixture thickens and coats the spoon. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
