They still have tinned custard in the cupboard (to be fair not many people make their own custard often). At school, he ate terrible chocolate doughnuts and Barry being Barry, thought it would be excellent to combine the two sickly sweet things into one mega sweet treat.</p><!– –><!– –><p>Now he’s taken this into adulthood by going off the menu at his local cafe, ordering <b>two chocolate doughnuts with hot custard poured on the side</b>. This dish is strictly not to be eaten with cutlery. You must pick the doughnuts up by hand and dip them into the custard. It needs to get messy. The Nutella and bready crumbs need to mix with the custard as you dip to create a dirty mixture to be licked from the bowl at the end of the experience.</p><!– –><!– –><p>This isn’t really about one super sweet dish though. The real bucket list experience is finding <b>a dish that you can go to when you’ve had a hard day</b>. It’s something that maybe you don’t have very often but you know that when you need it, it’s there for you to provide an instant hit of comfort and happiness. It could be a lamb tagine after getting ripped off on holiday (a true story, Barry says) or the feeling of digging into doughnuts and custard and <b>going back to being a kid</b> without the worries and the stress.</p><!– –><!– –><p>The doughnuts take some time but they’re worth it. Making the dough is easy, just bring everything together and knead. Then you have to prove it once, shape them into balls and prove once more before carefully deep frying. Try not to lose all that air when you move them so that they stay light and fluffy.</p><!– –><!– –><p>Making your own custard is super simple and while it’s not quite the same as the stuff from a tin, it’s still pretty good. It’s simply a case of whisking egg yolks and sugar together (with a little cornflour if you want it thicker). Then just heat milk with vanilla and slowly pour it over the eggs, whisking the whole time. Finally, pour it back into the pan and heat gently until it thickens. This is where you can add a little <b>coffee and a hint of alcohol</b> too.</p><!– –><!– –><p>Fill the doughnuts with Nutella and use your hands to dip them in the hot custard.</p><!– –><!– –></div><!– –></div><!– –></div><!– –></div><!– –><!– –>[/wcm_restrict]
