Bone Apple Teeth: Custard: Soup, but make it dessert.

There are times in life when you don’t want to make a meal for yourself, but you also want to cook something. There are times when you want dinner, but actually, really, only want dessert. Custard is easy and gooey and somehow deeply nostalgic. Eat a whole pot of it and call it a night.

This is the recipe that Rachel McAdams would make in the kitchen while she’s waiting for her time- travelling husband to return. May it warm you until you can feel human touch for yourself. 



  • A mug o’milk (any kind is fine)

  • 2 tablespoons of sugar 

  • 1 tablespoon of corn flour (or 2 of normal flour) 

  • 2 egg yolks

  • A pinch of some vanilla essence/cinnamon/nutmeg like whatever



  1. Warm the milk on the stove, gently, stirring constantly and making sure it doesn’t burn or stick to the bottom (haha, bottom). 

  2. Whilst milk is warming, whisk egg yolks, sugar and flour together in a separate bowl. 

  3. Pour a little bit of hot milk into the egg mixture.

  4. Whisk together. If using extra things, add in here. Then pour back into the pot. 

  5. Stir custard over low heat with a wooden spoon until thickened. Yum.
