Banana Lemon Custard Pots

Christmas, Christmas time is here, time for joy and time for cheer.

Oh sorry, you caught me practising for an upcoming karaoke session. Never mind me, this never happened.

Oh look, is that custard above!?

Yes, Christmas is coming up and my holiday baking has been through the roof, both annoying and delighting the other members of my family. The fridge is filled with food, but they love trying it anyway.

My mum’s a fan of the custard in particular.

So yes, you will be getting some upcoming cookie recipes, because cookies are awesome to give as gifts and very easy to make a big batch at once. You can even make a big batch of a base dough and the different additions can make different cookies for a little bit of variety. Brownies are a nice touch as well, but I prefer the barely baked ones which are quite messy to put in a box.

 

Fudge as well. I’ve made an obscene amount for the past two years at Christmas. I’ve also been trying my hand at homemade chocolates and sweets.

However, with exams coming up, I’ve had to make big batches of everything at once and then freeze it and defrost it when it’s needed for gifts. I finally finished wrapping all of my gift boxes this morning so now I have boxes to put my gifts in.

Unfortunately, these can’t be put into gift boxes.

They are nice for a lighter dessert when you need a break from the heavier holiday fare.

The blender or a hand blender and a few ramekins is all you need aside from an oven and the ingredients of course!

Just blend everything together, taste and adjust the taste accordingly and then bake until the centres are not quite set, but the edges are and then leave to chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours and you have some lovely little banana lemon custard pots.

A little bit of cinnamon and honey drizzled on top is a nice addition to these.
