I love a good baked custard. It is the fastest ‘whip up’ dessert, being in the oven within a minute of getting started. One day many years ago, I had leftover fruit mince when making the Christmas cake, and I was wondering what to do with it, as it was only about 1/2 a cup. This recipe was born from that predicament.
Restriction often propels me towards creativity. Are you like that by chance? It seems as soon as I’m told ‘that’s not possible’ or ‘there’s not much you can do with that’ then I’m like, RIGHT. I’ll show you! In this case it was an imaginary conversation I was having with myself, because no one was home. Either way I guess I ‘showed me’! I hope you enjoy.
So simple and quick to make – Best of course is to make the fruit cake first, and then to make a couple of these little baked custards with the leftovers.
Don’t want to bother with Christmas mince? Mix your coconut cream, eggs and rum as above, with 2 tbsp maple, honey or rice malt syrup. Then mix in a half cup of frozen berries. Delicious.
