What is custard? Very similar to pudding, custard uses sugar, eggs, and milk to form a creamy, decadent dessert. What differentiates custard from pudding is that custard is firmer and uses the egg as the thickening agent. Custards are very versatile, making them an ideal filling for trifles, pies, bread pudding, and Crème Brûlée.
