Recipe Comments & Reviews

Love this Love this Love this! I have made this countless of times and everyone loves it. It is simple enough but just remember to be patient and never stop watching. Also I find only using 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla works the best. i find the sugar from the berries are more than a efficient amount of sugar. U can also cook it a little longer over low heat, which makes it a little thicker consistency I have also melted chocolate chips into the custard and added some strawberries..
I have made this recipe time and time again and it is consistently fabulous. For a very simple yet elegant desert any time of the year berries can be purchased, this recipe will wow your guests!
