Custard - quick and easy!

by Collette White | March 19, 2014

Good Morning friends, I hope this finds you well.

Since getting my Thermomix the kids have a love for Custard (as I hardly ever made it before and never bought it!) It is a quick afternoon tea or dessert for them with fresh or stewed fruit. I have been following the recipe in the TMX EDC for their Custard but using rice flour or tapioca flour, using honey or rapadura and using rice milk. I have posted a few photos on Instagram and have been asked a few times how to make a GF and DF custard on the stove top….so here it is….

I hope you enjoy it!


2 eggs

¼ cup rapadura

3 tblspns rice flour

1 tspn vanilla essence

2 cups rice milk


Place the eggs, rapadura, rice flour and vanilla into a saucepan (NOT on the stovetop) and whisk until thoroughly combined.

Place the mixture on the stovetop on a medium-high heat. Add the milk in a steady stream, whisking the entire time.

Whisk for 5-6 minutes over the medium-high heat or until the custard starts to thicken. Do not allow the mixture to boil!

Remove from heat and allow to cool for 1 minute before pouring into a serving dish or ramekins.



  • Swap rapadura for brown sugar or sweetener of your choice
  • Swap rice flour for tapioca flour or cornflour
  • Swap rice milk for milk of your choice
  • Don’t let the custard get too thick on the stovetop as it will thicken also as it cools down
  • Serve with fresh or stewed fruit

Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
Take Care of You,
