Dukan friendly Custard.

Well I made the Custard from the recipe in the Dukan Diet Book and it turned out lovely!  I tweaked it a bit as hubby (who is a wonderful cook and does most of the food) assured me I wouldn´t like the original recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 5 Eggs
  • 375 mls Skimmed Milk
  • 1 Vanilla Pod
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 5 tsp Sweetener

Preheat oven to 150º/300º Gas Mark 2.

Beat the eggs in a large bowl.  Split the Vanilla Pod and scrape out the inside.  Add the sweetener and the vanilla pod (inside scraping and bean)  to the milk.  Heat the milk but don´t let it boil.  When the milk is warmed add it slowly to the beaten eggs stirring the mixture all the time.

Put the mixture in one large or 6 small baking dishes and put in a Bain Marie.  Add enough boiling water to reach 3/4 way up the baking dish.  Cook for 35 – 40 minutes.  Let cool for 2 hours in the Bain Marie.

Enjoy!
