Great for spotted dick Review by Sarah

I use this custard for my spotted dick pudding as it is quick thick and incredibly flavorful, but without being overwhelming. It adds just the right amount of sweetness and body to puddings.

I love Birds Eye Custard either on its own, or with tinned fruit,
or Christmas Pudding. It is delicious and simple to make, and
there is nothing comparable on Supermarket shelves.

Makes Desserts Special Review by Capnden

My mother back in Lancashire used to make this with fruit pies and with steamed sponge pudding and rolly polly pud. The only drawback is figuring out what to say when people ask for the recipe.

This hard-to-find item was just what I was looking for and worked out great for my authentic nanimo bar recipe. You can’t help but sample the custard because it looked so good in the mixing bowl - and it was very tasty. Postage costs almost as much as my item though. Birds' Custard Powder

My kids, now college age, love this stuff, especially on mince(meat) tart.<br><br>To Linda and Pam, (or any one else who’s not sure). The powder has a conrnflour (cornstarch) base, so once it comes to the boil you must reduce the heat to medium and let the sauce cook until it thickens. BTW if you use a US pint-16 oz, rather than a British/imperial pint-20 oz, you’ll end up with thicker custard. My kids love this stuff

Had to laugh at katiescarlett71’s post. I’m from Canada as well, and when I moved here I had to have my mother mail me a can of custard powder to make Nanaimo Bars. That was AGES ago, and whenever I go to Canada, I bring some across. Made some Nanaimo bars for a Christmas party last night, and a friend who had once lived in Canada as well asked WHERE I got the custard powder from, as she couldn’t find any and was always looking longingly at her recipe, unable to make them. How pleased I was to find a place to order online! I phoned her up right away and she was thrilled!! Thanks for providing hard to find products to us die-hard Bird’s Custard fans! Now we can indulge at will--and I can send everyone who asks for the Nanaimo bar recipe to you for the key ingredient! Bird's Custard Powder

It’s taken me years to get even close to preparing Birds Custard just to my taste. I use about 3 parts sugar to 4 parts custard powder. Create the paste in the pan and then pour that to a bowl. When you come to put the cold milk into the pan for heating, you’ll have left a little of the paste mix in there coating the pan. It later seems to help them key together. I’m almost getting it down to how it was at at school. <br><br>For flavour I use instant milkshake powder. It’s quick and dirty but works really well. Om nom nom
