Easy to prepare.

It is, if you use the recipe on the container which is really intended for a warm custard sauce.

My Granny was British, a great cook (ahhhh! Granny's comfort food!!!), and just an angel on earth. When she passed, I wanted things that reminded me of her. I remembered her making Bird's Custard for me once, after she'd been to the British foods shop and found some. I found it on Amazon and ordered a couple of the smaller tubs. I made it one evening and offered some to my hubby, who doesn't care for too many sweets. He LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this stuff. My small tub disappeared within a week's time. I found the double size tubs and stocked up. My husband will eat this stuff nearly every night. I have some dollar store salt/pepper shakers that I keep nutmeg in... I just put a few shakes of nutmeg on top (like Granny did) and it's perfect. When I want to make a richer pudding, I'll make with some half and half or heavy cream. That's just for special occasions (like PMS!).

Unbelievable taste!!! 2nd to none. Doesn't like to be doubled or tripled from the original recipe, so watch that.

I bought this for a specific recipe in a book and I like the flavor so much I've been looking for more ways to use it. The cake I made with it turned out beautifully, as did the cookies. The cookies didn't even last until the next day! The flavor is mild, but very present in baked goods and custard creams.

I grew up in Switzerland and had an English babysitter who would make Bird's for us.

This is the same stuff, and I have fond memories of my childhood (30+ years ago) whenever I taste it.

I use proportionately less sugar and more Bird's than the suggested recipe (the suggested recipe has a 1:1 ratio of custard mix to sugar - I use about two parts mix to 1 part sugar by volume).

My mode of preparation is as follows:
- I mix the sugar and mix with a small amount of milk until all clumps are removed and nothing is stuck to the bottom/sides of the bowl
- I add the appropriate amount of milk (in my case about 10 oz. of milk for something around 1.5 tablespoons of mix)
- I put 4 minutes on the microwave, but stir at these intervals:
- 1 minute
- 1:30
- 1:50
- Every 15 seconds until the custard thickens

I find that it's important to stir regularly, as the microwave heats unevenly and waiting too long can cause some of the mix to settle and/or stick to the sides and bottom of the bowl.

Once the custard starts to thicken, I heat for another 15 seconds and stir well.

I like the custard by itself and as a condiment with things like cookies or apple pie.

I am 65 yrs old, when I was a kid my grandmother would make angel food cake with a wonderful custard sauce.
Before my grandmother passed away I asked her how to make her custard sauce. She was unable to remember, so I asked my mother, she did not know either. My search began but not knowing exactly what I was looking for...
you see my problem.
Finally I discovered Bird's Custard Powder, gave it a try & my oh my this was it.
This is the best custard sauce & very easy to make.
Bird's Custard Powder, remember that name.

As the title of my review suggests, I bought this product to try out the 11th Doctor's favorite food: fish fingers and custard. The custard itself is quite good. I've experimented with different ways of cooking it. For me, the best way is to cook it in a microwave, stirring it every minute or so for the six minutes of cooking time recommended on the package.

As advice to those interested in using this for trying out fish fingers and custard, I'd recommend putting in half the sugar indicated on the package. I tried it that way, and the result was actually quite nice. Not a "go-to" snack, but not terrible, either.

Overall, I'd buy this custard again, as it goes well with waffles or pancakes and is a nice treat on its own.

Really delightful taste, very light, very, VERY British. Easy to prepare. I'd back off on the recommended sugar and back off a little on the recommended milk for a slightly thicker custard. Lovely, homey type of dessert, ideal with berries or shortcake. 100% recommended -- this stuff is heavenly!!!
