Wow! I made this for my kiddo after dental surgery and she’s locked two bowls clean! I I used maple syrup instead of sugar and added cinnamon and it tasted like a South African milk tart recipe

Better than B@@ds custard powder! I used a combination of plant milk 100ml of coconut, the rest oat. I also used coconut sugar & no salt. The consensus (two group-up and two children aged 10 & 8) AMAZING! Best custard ever!. So I'm clearing going to be making it again! Thanks Dove Farm.
