Cream Cracker Custard Slice
This delicious pudding recipe was shared by a friend over the weekend.
You will need:
1 Packet of Cream Crackers (depending on the size of your dish)
1 Ltr milk
3 Tbsp Maizena
3 Tbsp Custard Powder
4 eggs separated (beat whites till stiff)
1.5 tsp vanilla essence
6 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp butter
2 Cups icing sugar
4 drops of vanilla essence
dissolve in about 3 Tbsp boiling water till mixture has formed a smooth paste. Add more water if needed.
Mix maizena and custard powder with some of the milk for thickening. Set aside. Place the remainder of the milk, yolk of eggs and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Add maizena and custard powder and mix thoroughly with a whisk to avoid lumps forming. Let simmer until mixture thickens. Add butter and vanilla essence and lastly add beaten egg whites. Combine well till mixture resembles custard.
Place half the cream crackers in the bottom of your dish (facing the same way), pour custard over and put the other half of the biscuits on top (facing the same way as the bottom biscuits). Place in the fridge and allow to cool and set. When completely cooled, pour icing on the top.
