I can't remember.

Add another egg yolk?

Blast in a blender?

Heeeeeeeeeelp!

wallop it in a blender?

moondog Wed 26-Dec-07 12:06:00

Ah yes,but will I fuck it up further?
I need someone who can give me 100% assurance on this.
Are you that woman Coldtits? grin

coldtits Wed 26-Dec-07 12:08:54

No. I make my custard with CHEAP CUSTARD POWDER. Then I put cream and brandy in it.

<keels clean over at mention of ... custard powder>

(Althoguh I know that secretly that is what dh wants, as his mum did it.)

Cheap custard powder. Not Birds.

Give your husband what he wants. Get the instant stuff. Get yer kettle on for the lads!

moondog Wed 26-Dec-07 12:15:33

I will pass on the message. grin

I did make hiom a vile white sauce (vom) yesterday as an act of love.

I have just made my custard and it didn't split <preen> (but it usually does, hence I know what to do).

Turn the custard into a fresh bowl and put the bowl in the sink filled with icecubes and cold water (sink, not bowl - oh you know what I mean). Then whisk with a balloon whisk and Delia promises all will be well. If not then a spoonful of cornflour added to some cream whisked in whilst re warming very gently.

My success rate with these methods is about 50:50.

And I secretly prefer Birds.

NineUnlovelyTinselDecorations Wed 26-Dec-07 12:19:09

Oh blimeyI mean the custard, not that I am really a lesbian.

Was it Colmans?

I love Colmans Pisseasy Sachets. My whole family have been raised on them.

But nobody every believes me that it is just as easy to make your own.

I rescued it with a blitz in the blender and my trifle was out of this world.
God,think I will have to raid the fridge for a piggy midnight attck on it.

moondog, are you really nigella wink

Inclines head modestly over a civilised glass of Louis Roederer.

I think the regular solution is to add a tablespoon of ice-cold water then beat like crazygrin

I will now add blitzing it to death to the list of solutions

lyra41 Wed 26-Dec-07 22:28:35

it was the "raid the fridge for a piggy midnight attck" bit that gave it away moondog.

The cold water / ice cubes worked a treat, thank you :-)

I always place the curdled custard in a sink full of ice & water & stir & most times it recovers. Today it didn't! However I whisked another egg yolk in & instant success!

WildIrishRose1 Sat 24-Dec-16 12:28:07

Just found this, having curdled my custard and the ice cubes method worked! Christmas is saved!

NineUnlovelyTinselDecorations you are a genius, this method worked just as my husband was getting his boots on to go buy some custard smile
