  • 250ml milk
  • 250ml cream or creme fraiche
  • 100g caster sugar, divided
  • 1 or 2 vanilla pods
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 C /Gas 2-3.
  2. Add the milk, cream and half of the sugar to a saucepan. Split the vanilla pods lengthways and, using the end of a teaspoon, scoop out the seeds. Add them to the milk. Stir and cook over low heat. Remove from heat when it starts to boil. Cool.
  3. In a bowl, mix the yolks with the remaining sugar with an electric mixer, until white and fluffy. Pour into the milk mixture and stir.
