You will need:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

Strawberries and Cream Custard

In a small mixing bowl, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Whisk in the eggs until thoroughly combined. Meanwhile, combine the evaporated milk and milk in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Slowly whisk 1/4 cup of the hot milk into the egg mixture. Stir for 30 seconds, then add to the milk mixture. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens, around 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the extract. Cool slightly and transfer to a serving bowl. Place plastic wrap completely over the top of the custard to prevent skim from forming. Refrigerate until cold. Stir in the strawberries and serve.
