What is custard powder?

I am making Nanaimo Bars and the recipe calls for custard powder. I have no idea what that is. Does anyone know what it is?

custard powder is more commonly available in the UK. It is basically a cooked pudding powder. Whatever brand you have available that you add milk to and then cook on the stovetop would be a close enough substitute - although probably more intense in flavour (vanilla) than true custard powder and thicker. The thickness you can do something about by adding slightly more milk.

Have eaten Nanaimo Bars in Canada


My wife is from Canada, we love Nanaimo Bars - but they're reserved for special ocassion - maybe like Valentine day, ....hmmmmmm
Use vanilla custard powder, cook it slowly and be conscience of the final consistency.
My wife has fooled her mom with this substitute.

.Hope the ocassion is worth the effort

There's a limited number of unique ingredients in this world. Cultural food uses the same ingredients but with local spices. You're only limited by your imagination.
