Guavas served with homemade custard

Guavas is a traditional South African dessert and can only be enjoyed properly when served with  warm homemade vanilla custard.

Vanilla Custard Recipe

  • 2 Egg Yolks room temperature
  • 2 tsp Corn Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

METHOD In a jug whisk together the egg yolks, cornflour and sugar until well combined. In a saucepan gently heat the milk and vanilla until warm (not hot!), remove from the heat and add the milk to the egg mixture. Tip it back into the saucepan and whisk constantly until boiling.  Take off the heat and whisk until the custard is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (if mixture isn’t thickening, gently heat again). Serve hot or cold.  If serving cold – add a layer of plastic wrap to the surface of the custard to prevent a skin forming.
