    Thank you very much all of you.



    Made it 4 a family member by opting it with artificial cooking sugar as she has diabetes and it turned out excellent. Thank you Khuserv once again.


    Seems like a nice option khuserv, will try it out. Just a query will it not turn brown if using brown sugar or do we need to use light brown sugar? Thank you.


    Well caramel custard is my mothers favourite dessert I hope she likes the low fat version though? I will give this one a try. Thank you.
