- Seeds from a vanilla pod
- 300ml full-fat milk
- 6 medium egg yolks
- 75g golden caster sugar
- ½ tsp cornflour
- Put the seeds from a vanilla pod into a pan with the milk and bring just to the boil.
- In a clean bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the golden caster sugar and cornflour until pale and thickened. Pour over the boiling milk, mix to combine, then return to the pan.
