Spanish Cream

Has anyone got a recipe for the spanish cream my mother used to make 40-50 years ago? In the days before ice cream was a standard dessert! I would love it to try again. Thanks.

butterfly70, I recall from when I was a child that Mum quite often made Spanish Cream from a Spanish Cream packet mix (like jelly crystals, instant pudding... . . ) but I'm assuming that you want a back-to-basics/make-it-from-sc-
ratch recipe such as this one from:-

"Spanish Cream
1 tbs. gelatine, 600ml Milk, 2 eggs, 50 g. sugar and vanilla ess. Soften gelatine in a saucepan with a little cold milk, add remainder of milk and stir over a low heat until gelatine is dissolved, then add sugar and lightly-beaten egg yoks. Stir with a wooden spoon over a low heat until the mixture coats the wooden spoon. Cool, then add stiffly beaten egg whites and vanilla. Pour into a wet mould and leave to set. That is straight out of the Edmonds book. Good luck. Used to make it a lot when kids were small. Everyone loved it. posted by gildon"

Hope that helps. :-))
