Prep Time: 10 minutes                           Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 cups DairyPure whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla

No Bake Vanilla Custard


Combine DairyPure milk, sugar, and cornstarch in a saucepan on the stove-top at a medium heat. Continue to whisk, making sure to scrap the bottom of the pan, so the cornstarch doesn’t burn, allowing the milk to scald.

Slowly add in egg yolks while whisking. Continue to heat the mixture another 2-3 minutes, until it begins to thicken. Do not boil!

Remove from heat. Add vanilla, mixing it in until combined.

Pour into individual serving dishes or ramekins. Set in the fridge and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes. Garnish with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of powdered sugar, if desired, and serve.

Custard's something I've been afraid to make, but your recipe seems easy enough. Maybe I should give it a try. Yours looks yummy, especially with berries on top. :) I hope you can stop on by and share this or any other recipe with us on Five Friday Finds!
