    We are also egg free (daughters are intolerant). Do you think chia seeds would work as a repkacement? And what about cornflour. Would love feedback before using my organic ingredients.

      I would suggest using a tablespoon of gelatin as egg replacer in this, perhaps a little less depending upon how solid and thick you want the end result to be.

    Can we use vanilla extract instead of vanilla powder?

      Hi Kirsty. Yes, that would be fine. Keep it in the fridge overnight and heat it through thoroughly. Enjoy 🙂

    I mDe this recipe this morning. Very disappointed in the edesilt. Followed instructions and measurements to the letter. The result was more like a floppy fine grain porridge. Nothing at all like the photo. I was surprised that it called for whole eggs (and only 2 for the volume of liquid).
    I have been making confectioners custard for years with perfect results and wanted to try. This recipe for my daughter who cannot have dairy.

      Hi Mandii. Thanks for getting in touch and sorry you had trouble with this recipe. If you try making it again, try adding in a little more coconut flour (recipe states it may take more than 0.25 cup to reach desired thickness). Hope this helps.
