Top Rated Custard Recipes

Pumpkin is the the ultimate fall ingredient. The great thing about this dessert is that you make it and put it aside while it chills. There's no need to worry about serving it warm. The coconut milk gives it an extra sweetness without that artificial flavor.  Click here to see the 10 Dessert Recipes for Diabetics (Slideshow)

Meringue Clouds with Custard
Farófias are little cloud-like meringues, briefly poached in hot milk, then served with custard and cinnamon. They are similar to the French dessert îles flottantes but have such a long Portuguese history that no one is quite sure whether the two are related. I learned to make these at the Cooking Lisbon school, where they proved to be deceptively light and dangerously easy to eat.Cinnamon has been widely used in Portuguese sweets since at least the 1500s, when part of modern-day Sri Lanka came under their control, then known as Portuguese Ceylon. — Rebecca Seal, author of Lisbon

Chawanmushi (Japanese Egg Custard)
This savory Japanese egg custard is the perfect comfort food for cold winter nights. Although the dish is traditionally made with gingko nuts and mitsuba, home cooks can toss in any of their favorite ingredients. In this recipe, I added shrimp and kamaboko, a fish cake with a bright pink lining. You can also substitute it with bite-sized pieces of chicken, or even crab meat.

I always tell my friends to never test new recipes when entertaining. We were invited to our friends house for a paleo dinner this past Saturday and I was asked to make a paleo dessert. Dessert is really not my favorite as I just love to cook but will bake! I saw all the apples at the market and already had the raw nuts (since I make paleo crunch). I did text my friend as let her know that I was testing a new recipe! She had faith… Well, even I have to admit it was amazing. I guess you could even add chocolate to the nut crust but I decided to keep it just nuts. After I made this the next day I was still thinking about it and decided to do it again but this time I used a muffin top tin. I even added the figs in with the apples. I love the individual servings. You really need to try this paleo recipes~! For this recipe and other entertaining tips from Cindy's Table, click here and sign up for my newsletter.
