Need help converting a recipe, peanut butter custard
« on: July 16, 2012, 09:09:29 am »
I'd love some advice on this one, I have come across a recipe that I would love to try, but I'm still a little inexperienced in converting methods for the TMX. The recipe has a biscuit crumb base then a peanut butter custard filling and topped with whipped cream, peanut butter cups and chocolate syrup! My DP will be putty in my hands if I make him this  ;D

Below are the ingredients and method for the custard filling. The quantities have been converted from US cups and halved, I thought the original amounts would be too much for the TMX, there were 6 US of milk alone  :o  I'm a little unsure if I should put everything in together or do the first part and add the eggs later as per the original method. Any advice will be appreciated.


Peanut Butter Custard Blast

170g sugar
40g cornstarch
30g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
750ml 2% milk
3 egg yolks, beaten
90g creamy peanut butter

For filling, in a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, flour and salt. Stir in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.

Remove from the heat. Stir 1 cup into peanut butter until smooth. Gently stir peanut butter mixture into the pan. Pour over crust.

I've just made a batch for you Queen Be as under

Mill sugar 15 sec/speed 9.
Add remaining ingredients and cook 10 mins/90o/speed 4.

I've poured mine into ramekins, it was pouring consistency thickness and I'm sure it will thicken up even more as it cools.

Wow!!! Thank you  ;D  I hope you enjoy your dessert tonight  ;)

I have another recipe for a peanut butter and brownie trifle which I am hoping to use this custard for as well, the original recipe used that vanilla instant pudding stuff they seem so be so fond of in America. In this one you layer chunks of chocolate brownies and peanut butter cups with the peanut butter flavoured custard. DROOL!!!

Hi Judy,
I would like to try making a dessert which involves peanut butter custard topped with dark chocolate mousse and roasted peanuts.  I know this post was quite a while ago, but was just wondering whether you can remember if the custard did firm up, as I would like a custard that is reasonably thick.
Cheers,
Chris

I can't remember that far back LOL but I think I would have got back to this post if it hadn't.  Give it a go.

It certainly does.

I would imagine the Peanut Butter Custard would firm up as it has cornstarch and flour in it. It seems enough to make it fairly firm.
