With the warmer weather here in Australia, we are pulling out all the winter favourites. This custard is delightful warm, and, nice and nourishing later as a cold dessert. The lemon zest gives it a lovely lift but of course you can leave this out. It's got only 6 whole foods and takes only 15 minutes to cook. Enjoy it today!
