Here’s what you need to make this delicious dessert:

  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch/corn flour (can also use gluten-free).
  • 600 ml (one pint) whole milk/low-fat milk.
  • 1 Egg (lightly beaten).
  • 2 tbsp Whole cream/light cream.
  • 100 gram Ground almond/3.5 oz. almond meal.
  • 3 tbsp Sugar.
  • ½ tsp Vanilla essence.


It's simple, quick, and yummy! Here's what you need to do:

  • First, add a bit of milk to the cornstarch/corn flour and blend well. Once mixed, add the remaining milk.
  • To this homogenous mixture, add the lightly beaten egg and cream. Whisk well.
  • Once blended well, pour this mixture into a saucepan and constantly stir over low heat until the custard thickens. DO NOTBOIL this mixture since the custard might start to curdle.
  • Add, while stirring, the ground almonds/almond meal, sugar, and vanilla essence.
  • Once desired consistency is obtained, take off the heat and leave to cool.
  • Serve warm or chilled as desired.

TIP: Instead of using a saucepan, you can also use a microwave to warm the mixture. Use medium-low heat and stir at 1-minute intervals until the custard thickens
