- 200 ml double cream 64p, 32p/100ml
- 700 ml whole milk 28p, 44p/l
- 4 egg yolks 52p, 13p each

- 1 tsp vanilla extract 16p, £3.17/100g
Whisk together the egg yolks, cornflour, sugar and vanilla in a bowl.
Put the cream and milk in a large pan and gently heat so it's just below boiling. Pour hot milk mixture into the egg mix, constantly whisking.
Quickly clean the saucepan and pour the mixture back into the saucepan. Heat gently until the custard starts to thicken - don’t overcook or it will go lumpy!
Serve immediately (can be cooled and eaten cold too!)
