Pineapple Green Tea Custard
This post is for the Cooking up Custard Sugar High Fridays event.
I loved green tea ice cream, so I thought this event would be a good excuse to try green tea custard. Also check out my Mango Mouse recipe that could have qualified as well.
1 cup milk
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tbsp ginger
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
3 bags of tea
1 can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
Heat oven to 350. In a sauce pan over medium heat, mix milk, cream, sugar honey, ginger, vanilla and salt. Hang tea bags off the side. Heat for 5 minutes or so and remove from heat
In the meantime beat eggs in another bowl. Place so water in a baking dish and arrange 5 custard cups in the dish.
Mix eggs in with the rest of the mixture. Pour mixture into the custard cups. Bake for 40 minutes.
Cool in the fridge for at least one hour.
Turn cups upside down and scoop onto serving plate. Garnish with pineapple and powdered sugar.
