Jelly and Custard

My darling mother is doing the Dukan with me – she wanted me to share this recipe (and her picture…)

So here it is.

What’s a more iconic or comforting dessert than this? It’s made in a snap too. Just chuck it in the fridge and leave it be for some time. All you need to do is make a sugar free jelly according to the package instructions and make a custard following this recipe:

1 tbsp Dukan-approved custard powder

1 cup cold milk

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Add everything to a saucepan and whisk well, making sure there are no lumps. Put heat on medium and cook slowly. Meanwhile, in a heat proof bowl add:

2 egg yolks

sweetneer to your taste. You can add more later

When milk has thickened and come to a boil switch off stove and add a spoonful of the hot mix into the egg mix and whisk really well. Repeat process two times then add eggs into the saucepan with the rest of the milk and cook again for 10 mins on a medium flame, or until thickened and coating back of spoon.

Put in bowl and leave to come to room temperature before chilling in fridge.
