Steamed Custard in Nectarines Recipe
1 large (US extra large) egg
45 ml muscavado (brown) sugar
30 ml coconut milk
Cut the nectarines in half. Using a teaspoon, scoop out the stones (pits) and a little of the surrounding flesh. Lightly beat the egg, then add the sugar and the coconut milk. Beat until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer the nectarines to a bamboo steamer and carefully fill the cavities three-quarters full with the custard mixture. Steam over a pan of simmering water for 5-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely before transferring to plates for serving.
