Do you want to prepare a home-made dessert but you don't have an oven? A homemade spanish custard, a.k.a Natillas recipe is the perfect choice!
- 750 ml milk
- 120 grams sugar
- 8 egg yolks
- A few drops of vanilla extract
- Cookies (to serve on top. Optional)
First of all, separate the yolks from the egg-white. Whisk the yolks and add about 250 ml of milk, mixing everything together very well.
Heat the rest of the milk and add 4 or 5 drops of vanilla extract. Add the sugar and leave it on low heat it until it starts boiling.
Add about a third of the boiling milk into the bowl that contains the eggs and the cold milk. Stir it well. Leave it on low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture starts to thicken. It is essential to make sure the mixture is hot but doesn’t boil, because this would ruin the natillas.
Place it in a bowl until it cools down. Then, you can serve the natillas in a glass with some cinnamon and a cookie on top.
