Is the Christmas season over? Yes.
Does that mean we have to stop eating delicious, custard-covered food? Absolutely not!
This recipe is perfect for those wanting to keep the Christmas spirit going for that little bit longer.
It’s a resident favourite from the Twilight kitchen and is often prepared by Ramina, one of the chefs who works in each of our four homes. It’s a treat you can enjoy all year round.
Heat the milk and cream in a saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to a gentle simmer. Remove from heat.
Use a balloon whisk to whisk together egg yolks, sugar and cornflour in a bowl until pale and creamy. Gradually whisk in milk mixture. Return to pan.
Place over medium heat and stir with a wooden spoon until the custard thickens and coats back of spoon. Make sure that it does not boil or else it will curdle the mixture. Remove from heat. Stir in the brandy. Serve warm on top of your favourite pudding.
