Dualit Product Recipe

Vanilla Custard

A rich, not too sweet version far superior to packet-based versions!
Serves 4 Prep Time 20 mins Cooking Time 25 mins

Creamy milk meets rich and indulgent egg yolks, sweetened with sugar and full of vanilla flavouring - the perfect addition to any dessert!


  • Five, Large Egg Yolks
  • 50g Castor Sugar
  • 375ml Milk
  • Vanilla Pod (split in two)
  • Few Drops of Vanilla Essence

1. Using the Dualit Hand Mixer, whisk the separated egg yolks and sugar until pale and sticky.

2. Heat the milk and vanilla pod in a shallow saucepan. When the mixture first starts to bubble around the sides, remove the pan from the heat.

3. Using the Dualit Hand Mixer, slowly pour the hot vanilla milk into the egg and sugar mixture.

4. Continue to whisk until the yolk, egg and milk mixture is smooth. Once well combined, pour the custard back into the saucepan used to heat the milk and, stirring well with a wooden spoon, heat until
it is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.

5. Once thickened, add the extract of vanilla.

6. Serve immediately and enjoy!


  • For those that are dairy free, choose a plant based alternative such as soya milk to make this creamy custard.
