DIRECTIONS

  • Put the milk over moderate heat in pan of suitable size (you don't want too much surface area, to prevent too much milk from evaporating).
  • Combine the egg yolks, sugar and corn starch in a heavy-bottomed pan. When the milk boils, turn down the heat.
  • Combine the milk with sugar/egg-yolk mixture bit by bit, making sure the mixture is completely dissolved in the milk. Now add the vanilla extract or other flavouring.
  • Now turn on the heat (not too high, but you don't have to be extremely careful either) and keep stirring until the mixture starts to boil again and then turn off the heat. I like to use a whisk, which helps to mix everything well and make the custard slightly fluffy.
  • If you feel the custard is too fluid even after it has boiled you can consider adding a bit more corn starch, but be very sure to mix it with some milk first, and be sure to not let the custard continue boiling for too long.
  • Pour the custard into serving dishes. The custard can be served while hot (but wait a few minutes, or you'll burn your mouth) or after letting it cool down (it will thicken slightly while cooling down).
