Maple Syrup Custard with Berry and Almond Crumble Topper  


Maple Dessert

I believe a heart-warming custard recipe belongs in every home. I particularly like this recipe because it uses pure maple syrup. Maple syrup not only tastes divine but also contains a higher antioxidant and nutrient content compared to alternative sweeteners. Always remember, the darker the better when it comes to selecting maple syrup.
