  • 1 vanilla pod, sliced in half (or 1 tsp. vanilla essence)
  • 60 ml flour
  • 60 ml cornflour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 150 g sugar


Place the milk in a saucepan, scrape in the vanilla seeds and drop in the vanilla pod. Heat to just boiling.

In a bowl place the flour, cornflour, eggs and egg yolks and whisk well.

Pour the hot milk over the egg mixture and whisk to mix into a custard.

Strain the custard back into the pot and whisk continuously over a medium heat until thickened. Cook for a few minutes more.

Thin the custard with extra milk until you reach the desired consistency.
