Step 1 of 3

To make the custard, place the evaporated milk and corn flour in a saucepan and slowly bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Meanwhile mix the eggs, egg yolks, vanilla and condensed milk together in a glass bowl. Put over a pan of boiling water and heat whilst stirring until thickened. Set aside to cool.

Step 2 of 3

Whip the cream until it thickens and forms stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream gently through the cool custard.

Step 3 of 3

Drain the gooseberries. Layer the custard mixture with the gooseberries in small serving bowls and chill in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.

Swap our the tinned gooseberries for tinned rhubarb for a taste of your childhood - or better still make your own fruit compote and stir through the creamy mixture to taste. Yum!
