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 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 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 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.

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!!!

I'm not sure that custard is really custard without eggs. But this comes close. I got it for use in a "Vegan pancake" recipe. We were having houseguests who were Vegan and I wanted to make some special breakfasts while they were here. One of the cooking/recipe sites had a recipe using this and there were lots of great reviews. I tried the recipe and it turned out like wallpaper paste -- yuck!
However, the so-called custard isn't so bad. I think it's probably just cornstarch and annatto (yellow coloring with a slight flavor). It's fun playing with it. You could dress it up with fruit. Seems to come out on the thin side when you make it as directed, so I use less milk because I like my custards to set firm. As a custard sauce it's fine. I would say it tastes something between a pudding and a custard.

If you want a really good egg-free "custard" get an original recipe for "blanc mange." It takes a lot longer to make, but it's certainly worth the difference.

I'm originally from Scotland this is the brand we all used and I'm so happy I can find this in stores now in the US but love this larger sized container on Amazon and used this to make my Christmas Trifle reducing the amount of milk to make it thicker. If your Scottish you will remember our huge pink jugs of custard at dinner school...the best!
