Expert Tips

If you want to make it a little more interesting, you can pour a little rum in!

This custard dessert is a sweet treat typically found in the Andean zone of Colombia. It's very typical to see the families in Bogota enjoying this dessert every weekend after a meal of ajiaco or barbeque. Since the moment I learned the recipe, I haven’t stopped preparing this delicious desert. I usually add a good amount of raisins and a touch of rum.

Directions

  • 1 Boil the milk until cream (milk skin) forms; remove the cream as it forms. This will take a while. After about one hour cream no longer forms.
  • 2 Place the cream in a separate container and set aside.
  • 3 Pour the sugar into a pot and cover with the water.
  • 4 Heat until syrup is formed.
  • 5 Whip the yolks with the help of an electric mixer in a separate container until you get a pale yellow light mixture.
  • 6 Add the cream to the syrup little by little, and then gradually add the yolks.
  • 7 Cook over low heat for a short time (1 minute) and remove the mixture from the stovetop before it boils.
  • 8 Add the raisins to taste and serve the dessert on individual dishes.
  • 9 Refrigerate until it thickens.
