Custard is served with so many desserts or even on its own. The sweet cream can be addicting – I would know from personal experience.
We did not want you to miss out on the fun, so we have this vegan custard recipe from “The minimalist vegan”.
Before we get into the recipe, it is essential to know how your custard is served. For example, with a dessert, by itself, etc.
If you already know, then fantastic! If you don’t, that is okay. I wanted to explain the difference between Crème anglaise and creme patisserie.
Crème anglaise is french for “English cream”. It is a thin pouring sauce that is typically used as a topping. It’s commonly made if you are trying to drizzle the custard over anything like fruits.
Crème pâtissiere is a thick cream for pastries. Pastry cream is used for doughnuts, eclairs, cannelloni, and tarts.
Both are made the same way, just with more or less cornstarch.
Below we have provided the recipe, tips, and different ways to serve custard. Let’s not hesitate any longer. Here is a Vegan Custard Recipe.
For this recipe, you will only need a saucepan and a mixing bowl. If you are serving the custard right away, I would have serving dishes on hand as well.
In the ingredients section, you will notice that the cornstarch has a range of measurements. The amount of cornstarch depends on how you will serve the custard. I mentioned this earlier – if you want crème pâtissiere, you will need the measurements for a thicker sauce. If you want a crème anglaise, you will use the measurements for a thinner sauce.
Once you decided how much you want to use, we can get into the ingredients.
Typically custard is made with eggs which can burn during the process. Luckily, you do not have to worry about that, but we have some tips to help you out.
Custard can be eaten on its own! It is delicious served in a small bowl, but it is just as good as many other foods and desserts.
You can drizzle custard across berries for a sweet snack. If you want to drizzle custard on top of anything, you will need to do it quickly because your custard will thicken when it cools. If your custard does thicken, it makes a good dipping sauce for strawberries.
Another option is custard served with fruit on top such as kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, etc.
Custard is commonly served in pies! I have seen lemon and peach pies – even custard pies with nothing added are very common.
Another custard product is with cream pastries known as a creme patisserie. These are so delicious with the vegan custard.
Lastly, an easy custard dessert is creme brulee. It is effortless to make and adds a fancy touch to your dessert.
Hopefully, you enjoyed this delicious vegan custard with your favourite dessert! You can be as creative as you want with this recipe or enjoy a nice cup by itself. Enjoy with friends, and don’t forget to come back for more vegan recipes!
