    Nicked this from a food forum:

    "hi i was a school cook for 20 years the way we made the mint custard was cornflour @sugar mixed with milk to a paste then pour into boiled milkand stirred to thicken we then added peppermint flavouring to taste you then use green food colouring to colour. Icannot remember the exact quantities you will have to play about with it"

    a massive piece of steamed sponge with a layer of strawberry jam on top, with custard. I know most people think its disgustin but i always used to ask for the skin off the custard too. The sponge would always stick to the roof of your mouth!! and..... The plain or chocolate shortbread if it had just been baked and was still warm and crumbly and moist!! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!x

    I loved cornflake tarts at school. That and the caramel shortcake with the thick slab of chocolate on top (Which they sell in asda and tesco's now thankfully!)
