Combine milk and vanilla pod in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat.
Meanwhile, beat sugar with eggs in a bowl until mixture is creamy and a very pale yellow colour. Stir in flour; remove vanilla pod from saucepan and gradually add boiling milk to egg mixture, mixing well.
Pour mixture into saucepan and cook over very low heat, stirring occasionally, until custard is thickened and ready.
Was so easy to make and very satisfying. The taste is so much better than shop bought custard. Never known the family look so blissed by one of my desserts before! Served this over apple and plum crumble. - 27 Apr 2013
