A creamy custard makes a wonderful dessert and this vanilla custard is no exception. The tangy berry coulis makes it extra delicious.
- Yield: 6
- Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
- 14 oz (400 g) raspberries
- 4 tbsp stevia granules
- 3 tbsp water
- ½ lemon juice
- 1 tsp arrowroot, if needed
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp cornflour
- 17 fl oz (500 ml) semi-skimmed milk
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 1 heaped tbsp grated plain chocolate, to decorate
How to Make It
- Reserve 100 g/3½ oz of the raspberries. Put the remaining raspberries into a microwaveable bowl with 1 tablespoon of the stevia granules and the water and cook in the microwave at 850 watts, until the raspberries have disintegrated and there is plenty of juice.
- Press the raspberries through a sieve into a bowl, using the end of a rolling pin or a pestle to push them through the sieve. Stir the lemon juice into the bowl. The mixture should be thicker than juice. If it is too thin, transfer to a small saucepan with the arrowroot and stir over a medium heat until thickened. Set aside.
- Whisk the eggs in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of the remaining stevia granules and the vanilla extract. Stir in the cornflour and whisk again until well combined.
- Heat the milk in a saucepan until just below boiling point. Gradually pour the milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly, then return the contents of the bowl to the pan.
- Whisk constantly over a medium–low heat until the custard thickens. Remove from the heat and taste it – if it is not quite sweet enough, add more stevia granules to taste and return to the heat to dissolve them. Whisk in the butter.
- Spoon the custard into six 150-ml/5-fl oz glasses and transfer to the refrigerator to cool completely. Top each dessert with some of the raspberry coulis and the reserved raspberries. Sprinkle with the grated chocolate and serve immediately.
