Custard is such a versatile food, and if you don’t believe it you only need to look at all the recipes out there that include.
We love a good custard, whether it’s a classic plain custard, or a reinvention we never would have thought of. To get you started loving custard, here are 25 amazingly varied custard themed recipes.
1. How to Make Custard – From Scratch
You can’t fault a good custard, particularly if it’s made from scratch. Creamy soft and silky smooth, what’s not to like?

Sure, the classic vanilla slice is great (look down below for that recipe) but we do like it when there’s a bit of a twist on what’s ‘normal’. This hazelnut crunch definitely qualifies!
Is it even Christmas if there’s no brandy custard on the table for the adults? We didn’t think so, but we’ve made a few cheeky brandy custards outside of the holiday season as well!
6. Double Chocolate Eclair Cake
This Double Chocolate No Bake Eclair Cake has so much going on for it that we’re drooling from the title alone. Custard, chocolate, eclair flashbacks and the ease of no baking, we love it!
There’s something about the texture of custard that just gets us, which is why these Creamy Vanilla Custard Cupcakes are so damn good.
This custard pie, or Galatoboureko is actually a traditional Greek dish. The smooth custard and that stunning flaky topping, serve us a big slice!

Rice pudding is great, don’t get us wrong, and it’s particularly a hit with the kids. But once you’ve tried this custard style baked rice pudding you’ll never make it any other way!
We might have never heard of the flapper pie before, but don’t think we aren’t totally in love with it. Look at those stunning layers, and the custard… We’re drooling!
Mexican chocolate custard cake is flourless, super rich, and easy as to make. It has a great texture and subtle spice flavour, we’re definitely fans!
There’s something about berries and custard that we just love, particularly when it’s a recipe like this Berry Custard Cake that we just cannot get enough of. Recommended!
Can you really have a custard recipe list without a classic creme brûlée? We didn’t think so! Definitely worth making for your next fancy dessert.
Portuguese custard tarts are just good. They’re super moorish and way too easy to just feed in, but that doesn’t mean we’re planning on not making them. Definitely a custard fave.
A good pudding will do wonders on a bad day, and a good chocolate pudding is just infinitely better. This chocolate custard pudding? So good we can’t describe it!
If you don’t have a classic vanilla custard slice in your collection, you are missing out. There are so many to choose from, but this one definitely has a lot going for it.

21. Carrot Custard
Carrot custard might sound weird, but it’s totally legit and absolutely delicious. Perfect for using up excess carrots when carrot cake just isn’t satisfying anymore.
If you thought the vanilla custard magic cake was cool, just wait until you see the decadence that is the chocolate magic cake. Three blissful layers, minimal effort!
23. Sugar Cream Pie
Pretty much creme brûlée in pie form, there’s not much to fault with this sugar cream pie, except that there isn’t more of it!
Blueberries and custard will always get a yes from us, particularly when they’re contained in a recipe as stunning as this blueberry custard pie. Hell yes.
Chocolate custard pie is one thing, but a toasted marshmallow chocolate custard pie is entirely another. You will not be able to say no to this one.
