500 ml milk
1 vanilla pod, sliced in half (or 1 tsp. vanilla essence)
60 ml flour
60 ml cornflour
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.
Serve with your favorite dessert.
