Celebrate Vanilla Custard Day on August 17th and enjoy this delicious dessert.
History of Vanilla Custard
Custard is thought to have originated in ancient Greece, where a dish called "sauce au tarte" was made with a flour and milk mixture that was boiled and served hot. The Arabs later adopted this dish, adding eggs and calling it "rice pudding". Custard eventually made its way to England, where it was called "trifle" or "bishop's pudding".
In the 18th century, custard became popular in America, where it was often served with fruit. Today, there are many different recipes for custard, but the basic ingredients remain the same: milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
Vanilla is one of the most popular flavors of custard, and it's no wonder why! The sweet and rich flavor of vanilla pairs perfectly with the creamy texture of custard. Vanilla extract is typically used to flavor custard, but you can also use vanilla beans or vanilla paste.
Whether you enjoy custard on its own or with fruit, we hope you have a delicious Vanilla Custard Day!
