Coffee Custard Slices

How to make quick Coffee Custard Slices using Puff Pastry

I always buy custard slices at the bakery as it {used to!} look like a lot of work and I really love them.

That changed since I started to make these Coffee Custard Slices and I even change the flavor now and then to the more traditional custard which is a vanilla flavor.

This recipe is quick, easy and I am always guaranteed of delicious custard slices which has never failed.

Coffee Custard Slices


2 Rolls Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted
3 cups Milk
Instant Coffee Powder/Granules
8 Egg Yolks
3/4 cup Caster Sugar
1/2 cup Cornflour
5 TB Butter, coarsely chopped
1 t Vanilla


1/2 cup Dark Chocolate, good quality, broken into pieces
2 TB Butter


1.) Pre-heat oven to 240 deg C (450 deg F) - line two baking sheets with baking paper.
2.) Roll out the Puff Pastry and place on the prepared baking sheets - bake 10 minutes or until puffed and light brown - remove from oven and let cool completely - flatten with your hand and cut both baked pastries to the same size - keep aside.
3.) Meanwhile, heat the Milk and Coffee until boiling point - remove from heat.
4.) Beat together the Egg Yolks, Sugar and Cornflour in a medium bowl until well combined.
5.) Add the Egg Yolk mixture to the Milk/Coffee mixture and place back on a medium heat - stir continuously until the custard boils and thickens - remove from heat - whisk in Butter and Vanilla.
6.) Cover surface of custard with plastic wrap - refrigerate until firm.
7.) Spread the firm Custard over one baked piece of Puff Pastry {puffed side up} - top custard with the remaining baked piece of Puff Pastry {puffed side down} - press down gently.
8.) Glaze: Melt together the Dark Chocolate and Butter until smooth - pour over pastry - refrigerate until set and cut into slices {about 2 hours}
