- 1 Vanilla pod
- 500ml of Milk
- 5 Egg Yolks
- 80g caster sugar
Next, in a bowl, mix your egg yolks with your sugar and mix. this needs to be whisked until it turns pale in colour. Through a sieve, pour your milk over this mixture, discarding the vanilla pod that was used earlier.
In another pan (Or the same one if you have time to wash it out. ;) ), add the mix and cook slowly. The mix needs to be continually stirred for at least 8 minutes until it thickens. Once it's able to coat the back of the spoon, it is ready.
[Note: For a savoury option, add cheese instead of vanilla.]
