Bird’s Custard Powder is a popular British food product used to make a custard, a sweet dessert sauce often served with pies, cakes, and other desserts. It is a fine powder made from cornflour, salt, and natural yellow colorings like annatto.
Bird’s Custard Powder is used to make custard by mixing the powder with sugar and milk in a saucepan and heating it until it thickens and turns creamy. The mixture is then used as a sauce or to top desserts.
Alfred Bird, a British chemist, founded Bird’s Custard Powder in 1837. He made the powder so that his wife, who is allergic to eggs, could have a dessert she could eat. Bird’s Custard Powder is still a popular product in the UK. It is used in a wide range of baked goods and desserts.
