Me and my love of desserts

Hello, Jan here. I recently had a really bad high. I had a craving for sugar so I ate about 20 grapes and some snakes as I settled down to watch the evening movie. Well, that little treat spiked my blood sugar so high I really thought I would have to go to hospital (and I probably should have looking back now). I laid in bed for the rest of the night, and the next day feeling like hell. 

I'm not on insulin tablets and it's very, very rare I have an episode like that. But it was so bad I never want to feel like that again so I've got an appointment with my new (fabulous) GP and we'll work out if I need to be on them.

But, after a few days when I finally felt normal again, it got me thinking. Just because I've got T2 diabetes doesn't mean I can't have a treat every now and then. So I started researching across the web and I came across Diabetes Australia's recipes for desserts. And boy do they look good! Here's one I made recently - Baked Custard Pots - yum, yum, yum!

  • To Prep: 10 minutes (makes 6 servings)
  • To Cook: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray
  • 1/4 cups caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons custard powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cups low-fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons sultanas
  • 1 pinch nutmeg

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 160C (315F) and lightly spray 6 ramekins with oil.
  2. Combine the sugar and custard powder in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, egg white and vanilla.
  4. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the sugar mixture and whisk to combine.
  5. Heat the milk in a saucepan over low heat for 3-4 minutes until hot (but not boiling).
  6. Gradually pour the milk into the egg mixture, whisking until well combined.
  7. Divide the sultanas evenly between the ramekins and pour over egg mixture; sprinkle with nutmeg.
  8. Place ramekins in a baking dish and pour boiling water into baking dish until halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  9. Bake for 1 hour or until set. Allow the ramekins to cool before serving.
