Layered Custard

The second recipe in line for "No bake recipes" is this layered custard. Custard preparation these days is no big deal. We get ready-made custard powder packets. We just have to boil milk with this custard powder and in minutes custard is ready. This would be a very good dessert for kids and also can be made quickly. I just made a little twist to this by adding some coloring agent and layering it.


Custard powder ( Vanilla flavor) - 100 grams
Milk - 1 litre
Sugar - 350 grams
Coloring agent - Green, red
Decorative sugar crystals - few


  • Mix the custard powder in about one glass of milk and keep it aside.
  • Boil the remaining milk in a thick bottomed vessel.
  • Once the milk starts to raise in the vessel, lower the flame. Add sugar and mix well.
  • Now add the custard mixture and mix well. Keep stirring till the mixture thickens for about 5 minutes and then switch off the stove.
  • Divide the custard into 3 portions. In one portion add a little green color and in another portion add a bit of red color.
  • Now in glass cups, layer this custard and refrigerate it for about an hour.
  • Decorate it with sugar crystals just before serving.
