Easy Tubby Custard Recipe

tubby custard recipe

Tubby Custard Recipe is a traditional custard recipe traditionally used in Scotland. It was brought to Scotland by the Vikings when they invaded in the late 10th or early 11th century. It is most often made with sweetened milk, but you can also use plain milk, yoghurt or cream. These are both healthier alternatives to butter or cream, which can result in a more custardy dish. It’s also sometimes called Fowling Child.

This tubby custard recipe is one of my favorites because it tastes fantastic, and there isn’t a lot of fuss involved. The end result is a custard that is a little crumbly, but still holds its shape well, and also a rich pudding with a subtle, buttery taste. Whether you’re a chocolate or vanilla fan, or maybe a bit of both, this custard recipe is a very tasty, and easy to make alternative to your normal custard recipes.

I love the tubby custard recipe and I’d like to share it with you. This recipe has many versions, some that call for different dairy products and some that do not. I’ve tried to keep things easy and honest. When you’re buying tubbier, it helps to add more than what is called for on the package. I used a mix of half and half and whole milk.
