I love the stuff, but find it a bit sweet.I've tried to master the art of making it, but it's just not a happening thing unfortunately.Does anyone have a tried and true recipe that comes up lovely and thick and creamy like the Meadow Fresh boxed stuff?If yes, please please please can you share?:-DThanks!

This would be near the consistency of a carton of custard. It dose not set hard, stays nice and soft. Keeps well covered , I kept mine for five days, no problem.
try the yolks custard, then see if you could use 3 whole eggs, ???
I am thinking the egg yolks from the pav makers must be used up some how.

egg yolk custard

put into a bowl
6 egg yolks, 1/3 cup of cornflour, whisk in 1 cup of milk.
set aside.
Put in a saucepan
1 & 1/4 cups of whole milk, 2 tsp vanilla
sprinkle over the milk 2/3 cup of sugar
Do not stir, put on stove and watch for it to simmer.
Add a little hot milk into the cold, while whisking, maybe half, then pour it back into the saucepan, return to the heat. I turned my element down by 1/4.
stir with a wooden spoon until it is nice and thick.
This custard sets real fast, as soon as I noticed it thickening I removed it from the stove, kept whisking while it finished cooking.
I have covered it with cling film to stop it skinning over

Easy Custard Recipe:

One egg
One tablespoon sugar
One tablespoon flour
One tablespoon cornflour - more if you like a thicker custard
One tablespoon golden syrup - more if you like this sweeter
600 ml milk

Method:Break egg into bowl, stir in sugar, then flour, cornflour and the golden syrup.Add milk slowly while stirring.

Microwave for two minutes, stir, then microwave in 1 minute intervals, stirring between each time until custard thickens.

Delicious hot or cold and the golden syrup gives this custard a different taste.

I have a carton of Meadow Fresh in the fridge at the moment - there is no egg mentioned in the contents.
