Greek Custard with Glace Fruits

From 'My Greek Kitchen' on Discovery Travel&Living - they called it Sharlota

6 cups of milk
6 eggs
1 cup cornflour
1 cup sugar
zest of 1 lime
1 tbs vanillin sugar
Glace fruits

Warm half of the milk in pot on stove. Take off the stove and add cold milk. Whisk in sugar, cornflour, lime zest and vanillin sugar. Put back on stove and whisk until thickened. Pour into bowl, cool a little and then place in fridge for 20mins. Slice glace fruit and arrange on top of custard.

EASE: 5/5.
Takes no time at all. Lightly whisking eggs and whisking custard is the only manual labour.
Prep time: 5mins. To warm milk and whisk in ingredients.
Cooking time: 5mins. To heat custard til thick.
TOTAL: 10mins. Plus 20mins cooling time.

TASTE: 3/5.
Just a normal thick chilled custard - would probably skip the glace fruits next time.

Would I make it again: No.
Not until I have kids.
