  1. Thank you for this recipe Liz! You don’t know how many times I’ve come across custard recipes that required so may steps. This is quick, easy, and delicious 😋!! Thanks again!!😄

        1. Ok! And If you don’t like it let me know because I’m sure I have a recipe for fruitcake I can blog. 😊😊

  2. Gosh, now this couldn’t be easier! I have not made custard for many years. I always enjoyed it over plain cake or cooked fruit such as apples and rhubarb. Thanks for the recipe Liz! How is your week going so far? I’m sitting here looking out at my driveway and the leaves are just beginning to drop from the oriental cherry but the Japanese maple is still holding onto every leaf! Soon they will all begin to drop and I will be busy raking. That’s when a nice simple dessert like custard over fruit will come in handy! Have a good day Liz.

    1. My mother always made custard and cake. That was her favourite dessert. The leaves look lovely here too. I don’t have a tree but they keep on flying around so I will be raking anyway. Have a great week!
