Simon’s Fave Uses for Custards


#1 Summer Trifles


  • Jam rolls / regular sponge cake – cut into slices, 1cm-thick
  • Jelly
  • Maleny custard
  • Fresh mangoes—cut into cubes
  • Fresh summer cherries—pitted
  • Freshly whipped cream
  • Grated dark chocolate (optional)

Line base of deep glass bowl with sponge cake, top with a layer of jelly, followed by a layer of sponge cake, custard, cherries—repeat layers until bowl is nearly full. Top with whipped cream and decorate with fruit or grated dark chocolate.

#3 Vanilla poached pears with Maleny custard

Remove core from pear (we found a handy tutorial here, heat a pot of water and sugar in a pot until sugar dissolves. Add seeded vanilla bean (cinnamon sticks work well too) and simmer until pear is tender. Remove pear from pot and serve warm with Maleny custard.
