Homemade custard with anything is a treat. A stick of shortbread or homemade apple tart. It’s the custard that gets the crowning glory.
250ml single cream
1 vanilla pod
6 egg yolks
100g caster sugar
- In a heavy bottomed pan very slowly heat the milk, cream and vanilla.
- Separately lightly beat the eggs and the sugar until thickened and then beat in the warm milk.
- Remove the vanilla and pour back into a clean heavy bottomed saucepan.
- Over a very low heat beat the mixture until it starts to thicken. When it coats the back of a wooden spoon it’s ready.
- Enjoy hot.
