Accessories you need



Makes a perfect glossy vanilla custard ideal for filling cannoli shells. Can add splash of Galiano to the custard and mix before filling shells.
Cover with glad wrap and store in fridge to cool before using to fill shells.
Chocolate really isnt needed in this recipe. You could do half vanilla and half choc.
Will get thicker as sets in fridge so dont overcook.

    So sorry to hear this. I make this really often and it works perfectly each time.
    Perhaps you could try cooking for an extra minute until it coats the back of a spoon before taking out.

  • Didn't work - very thin & runny....

    Didn't work - very thin & runny.
    Followed all directions and triple checked them.
    Even after 8hrs in the fridge it was still so thin.
    Colour after adding the chocolate was very pale, didn't look overly chocolatey. Sorry.
    Tried another one on here and worked easily (thick, dark etc). I feel like this one had way too much milk and cream.
