There has often been confusion over the word “PAP”. Some individuals use the term for infant cereal, but a true pap is a custard type dish that is rich in flavor. Pap is a stirred custard, also known as soft custard, custard sauce or, erroneously, boiled custard. It is cooked on top of the stove and stirred to a creamy, but pourable, consistency. It includes custards made with or without starch, such as flour or cornstarch. The ingredients include whole eggs as well as egg yolks used to add body and richness.
