How to Make Quick Custard in the Microwave

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 7 m
  • Elaboration 2 m
  • Cooking 5m

In the tall glass of a blender we put the milk, the yolks, the sugar, the cornstarch and we will scrape the inside of the vanilla bean. Beat for a few seconds with the mixer until you have a homogeneous mixture. If you do not have a mixer, this can be done by hand with some rods.

Strain the mixture through a strainer for a glass bowl or a microwaveable material, and cook in this order: 3 minutes at 800 W, stir, 2 minutes at 800 W, stir, 1 minute at 800 W, stir.

Once the time passes, we see that the mixture has thickened, if not, we put one more minute at most. If the custard has thickened, pour them into four small bowls and let them cool.

It is important to comply with the cooking and stirring times as the recipe says, in the microwave a few short periods of time and stops are not the same as all at once.
