So I thought it over for awhile and thought this can't be too complicated a dish to simplify. Well I came up with this result. My husband liked it, I liked it and most importantly our son liked it.
Here is the recipe. I have included pictures below of what ours looked like.
2 teaspoons corn flour
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
shredded coconut (optional)
Return the mixture back into the sauce pan and heat to a boil. Stir for about 1 to 2 minutes to allow the corn flour to cook but not stick to the bottom.
Beat the egg yolk lightly in a small bowl. Add a little of the corn flour mixture to the egg. Mix well. Pour into the saucepan.
Add the vanilla essence.
Serve hot or cold. Enjoy :)
