Cooking Instructions

1. Prepare the custard according to package instructions, adding the spices at the end to infuse. Pour into a deep rectangular dish lined with clingwrap and chill overnight until set.
2. Once the custard has set, cut into equal-sized squares. Dip into the beaten egg, then coat in the flour. Fry in batches in the hot oil until lightly golden and crispy. Remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.  Roll in the spiced sugar while still warm and serve with the caramel crunch sauce.
