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.
- 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.
