Classic custard

Classic custard
Serves 3-4
570ml milk
55ml single cream
1 tsp vanilla paste
4 egg yolks
30g caster sugar
2 tsp cornflour, level
  1. Combine the milk, cream and vanilla paste in a saucepan over a low heat and slowly bring to a simmering point.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour until well blended.
  3. Slowly pour about one-third of the hot milk mixture into the eggs, whisking constantly until combined.
  4. Pour the tempered mixture back into the pan, whisking gently over a low heat. Stir gently with a wooden spoon for around 7-8 minutes until the custard has thickened enough to coat the back of the spoon.
  5.  Pour the custard into a jug and serve immediately, or leave to cool and store in the fridge.
