The humble custard cream biscuit. So simple, so utterly scrumptious. And not as hard to make as you might have thought. Most importantly, I really do think these custard cream biscuits are so much nicer than store bought!
And, by the by, these biscuits are pretty hard to come by if you’re not in the UK. In other words, if you live anywhere outside the UK, and you know a Brit, make and gift these to them and they will love you forever! 😉
Custard powder, one of the key ingredients in this recipe, is readily available at all stores here in the UK. Finding it in other countries may be trickier, so do check out your local British store or online on places like Amazon.
Now, custard is one of my favourite accompaniments to cakes and crumbles. However, do you know the history behind it? Allow me to share!
Custard powder was invented by an awesome guy called Alfred Bird way back in 1837. He created it for his wife, who was allergic to eggs. If you didn’t know, eggs are a key ingredient in making custard from scratch. In short, he created custard powder just so his wife could also enjoy custard like everyone else. How adorable is that?!
All together now: Aaaaaaaaaawwwww!! ❤️
Now that’s love! 😍
And using it to make these divine custard cream biscuits, it honestly couldn’t be easier. Or tastier. 🤤
Much like my chocolate dipped shortbread, this recipe comes together really quickly. There is no chilling time needed so it’s a speedy one to put together. Just mix, bake, fill and eat. Simples!
I hope these beautiful custard cream biscuits will make you and someone in your life very happy 🥰
