QUICK CUSTARD PUDDING (Louisa Louw)
This custard pudding has stood the test of time in our family. It allows you to to make your own variations depending on what you have available. You can vary the biscuits, the fruit and even the jam, depending on what's in your grocery cupboard.
50ml custard powder
2½ table spoons sugar
Half a tin of any type of canned fruit - without the sauce
½ a pack of ginger biscuits
5ml vanilla essence
3 table spoons of apricot jam
Mix the custard, sugar and milk in a deep ± 2 litre container
Heat and stir until starting to boil
Mix in the vanilla and jam
Break the ginger biscuits in ± 8 pieces each and mix in
Slice up the fruit and mix in
The pudding can be served hot or cold. Ice cream compliments it.
