DIRECTIONS

  • Cream the egg yolks and the sugar together until thick and pale in colour.
  • Beat in the flour, cornflour, and a very small amount of the milk taken from the 300 ml total, just enough to make a smooth paste.
  • Heat the remaining milk until almost boiling (I use the mirowave) and pour it into the egg mixture, sirring constantly.
  • Stir mixture over a low heat until it boils, then remove.
  • Beat egg white until stiff and fold it into the custard.
  • Return to the heat again and add vanilla essence and cook for another few minutes.
  • Use as Choux pastry (cream puff) fillings etc.
