Chocolate Confectioners Custard

In a perfect world, my life would run smoothly and everything would go to plan. There would be no last minute changes to my schedule and my life would be …… well boring to say the least! Even though I bemoan the lack of time I seem to have, and the fact that my ‘to do’ list is growing, I love the busyness of my life. I am celebrating the abundance I am experiencing my just going with the flow. As my friend Chantelle says “too blessed to be stressed”. I made a Chocolate Confectioners Custard for my sfogliatelle and on a perfect blog, this recipe would have appeared first. But, I am far from perfect and so the recipe for the Chocolate Confectioners Custard is being posted after I used it. Thankfully this custard can be frozen as I made for too much for the sfogliatelle. I foresee some chocolate soufflés in my future!

    1. Thank you Michelle for the invitation. I see that the recipes would then be on your site as if your own, with no incentive for readers to visit my site. I am not sure how Google would deal with that for analytic purposes as well as SEO. I shall get some advice and make a decision afterwards. Kind Regards Tandy

  3. Oh yum!!
    The pastry looks so crisp and the filling would be creamy and lush!
    Delicious!!!
