jamaican rum custard pudding

Tuesday, May 17, 2011


I have been browsing recipes from my new international cookbook and decided to try out the Jamaican Rum Custard Pudding. MMMmmm!

My top two deciding factors for making a recipe are:

1) How many ingredients you need (more than 9 and I will most likely lose interest)
2) If the recipe calls for you to use more than one pot at a time...I'm out. SAD story we only have one pot!! We DID have 2...but someone decided to melt yellow crayon in it.


What you need:
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup of dark rum
Directions:

1) Bring the milk to boil, stirring constantly.
2) Combine the eggs, sugar and cornstarch. Add to the hot milk and cook, without boiling, until the mixture is thickened.
3) Remove from the heat and stir in the rum.

Not too difficult right?!


Since Ian is apparently an expert on custard (I believe last night was his first time having it) he said, "It was a little too custardy and needed more sugar and a tiny bit more rum." Haha! Okay got it.

That looks lovely Lindsay. As I'm not a big fan of rum, I might give it a try with another spirit. Thanks!

If you didn't already throw out the crayon pot... Have you tried to use barkeepers friend on it? Barkeepers friend is with the comet and whatnot in the cleaning section of any retailer, it's sold for about $1.40 and it removes anything and everything off of pots (including shining up an old pot) - give it a try

Anonymous- No I have not tried that yet. Thank you so much for the suggestion...I really could use 2 working pots. I am going to pick some up tomorrow to see if it works..fingers crossed!

I think my husband would like this. I might just have to try it this week! I love the idea of trying out forgotten/older recipes...I so frequently just hunt for recipes on Food Network or Cooking Light. I just found your blog and am following you now!

I love easy recipes too! I also love "tried-and-true" recipes. Both Rachel Ray and Martha Stewart magazines are full of recipes and I very rarely even think about making one of them. Plus often times the recipes are too "unique" for me like an over-easy egg on your green salad!!! But a recipe from another mom that she had made several times with ingredients that are easy to come by...I'm in!

Sharstin said...

I am so with ya!! The fewer the ingredients the better!

I've never made custard before but it looks sooo good! And so exciting to see only five ingredients in the recipe :)

Yes, I just found this long after you posted it, because I am searching for healthy recipes, just found your site, and LOVE it. And because I love used books AND cooking international foods, I'm curious - what is the book you're using? I'd love to see if I can find my own copy. I am a cookbook addict. ;)
