How to make it

  • Grease 8 x 11 inch jelly roll type pan
  • Line pan with wax paper, which comes up & extends over the 2 long sides
  • Combine the milk, cinnamon stick & rind in a heavy medium sized saucepan
  • Bring to the boil, & then remove from heat
  • Cover & let stand for 10 mins
  • Discard the cinnamon stick & rind
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, yolk, 1/3 cup flour, cornstarch, vanilla & sugar
  • Beat until smooth
  • Whisk egg mixture gradually into warm milk mixture
  • Stir over medium/low heat until custard comes to a boil & thickens
  • Simmer, stirring about 2 mins or until custard starts to leave side of saucepan
  • Spread custard evenly in prepared jelly roll pan
  • Cool
  • Cover & place in fridge for about 2 hours or until firm
  • Using the wax paper, carefully lift the custard out onto a firm surface
  • Cut into a variety of shapes
  • Dust shapes lightly with the extra flour
  • Deep fry in hot oil, in batches until browned
  • Drain on paper towels until cool enough to handle
  • Combine extra sugar & cinnamon
  • Gently toss hot custard shapes in the mixture
  • Best served immediately
  • .
  • NOTE:-
  • Custard shapes can be prepared a day ahead & then fried just before serving
  • I had the dial on my stove at 7 when I was deep frying, you don't want to fry them too fast or they get too dark real soon
  • Dip the cutters in flour before you cut out each one
  • Flour & deep fry all the odd pieces from the left over custard first as it helps to adjust the heat of your oil before you fry the bigger shapes
