Most Canadian Grocery stores carry either Birds Custard Powder or Harry Horne's custard powder. Safeway, Overwaitea, IGA, etc. If you see a store that carries it then get 2 tins of it. We use it to make runny custard for trifle and other desserts. For a nice runny custard, heat 3 cups of milk in the microwave in a large glass 2 litre measure or bowl and heat until boiling, mix 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup custard powder together and add 1 cup of cold milk, stir well. Add it stirring constantly to the hot milk. Heat the custard/milk mixture for about 5 minutes - stirring every 2 minutes. It will thicken. You may need to boil it for a minute to get the starch to cook. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla to finish. Serve with pies, ice cream and other desserts.
