My custard layered goodness

I have a dessert for you, it’s lazy, quick, minimal effort, 1 pot of washing up, need I say more to convince you to make this?

When we were kids, my mum used to make us custard dessert layered with banana and biscuits. It’s a cold dessert so it was popular during summer time. I’ve kinda gone off the base off the original recipe and came out with this one which I think is better (not being bias I promise🤣)

Ingredients: for measurements here it really depends on the dish you’re going to use to layer it in so eye ball measure but i used the following;

1) ready made custard (or make it yourself) I used a whole carton, 2) 1tsp of cardamom 3) digestive biscuits 4) 3 small bananas 5) 1 tbsp of cocoa powder 6) 1 tbsp of cocoa nibs (OPTIONAL)

How to make: on low heat let the custard and cardamom mix together and for the cardamom to release its flavour with the custard. While this is happening, lay the first layer with digestive biscuits, I crushed them and compressed them into a deep glass container. (You don’t have to crush them, can be laid out the way they are. Also, I’ve used tea biscuits before but they turned really mushy and not nice with the rest so for me digestive biscuits is better), then slice the bananas and layer on top of the biscuits. Let the custard cool down and pour a layer on top. REPEAT. Biscuits, banana, custard. This last layer of custard I added the cocoa and nibs, mixed it well and poured it on top!

Refrigerate for a couple of hours & leave in the fridge until it all disappears. Easy? Yessssssss
