I had leftover 1 Egg Yolk today. I wanted to eat something custardy, such as Creme Brûlée OR Creme Caramel. So, I decided to make this custard. I mixed all ingredients and microwaved it. It took less than 5 minutes to make it. Once it is cooled down, the custard was firm. I enjoyed it with Maple Syrup. This custard is perfect as filling for buns and ‘Dorayaki’. You need to reduce the amount of Flour if you like softer custard.


1 Serving


1 Egg Yolk
1/2 cup Milk
1 tablespoon (15ml) Caster Sugar *add extra for sweeter custard
1 tablespoon (15ml) Plain Flour
1-2 drops Vanilla Extract

  1. Place all ingredients in a heat-proof bowl, and use a small whisk to mix until smooth.
  2. Heat in the microwave at a medium power, 500 to 600W recommended, for 1 minute. Whisk well and heat for 1 minute again. Whisk well and heat until cooked. Whisk well until smooth.
  3. *Note: I poured the Custard into a glass and left it in the fridge until chilled, then added some Maple Syrup.
