Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2-3 servings


1/2 l milk
6 egg yolk(s)
90 gr sugar
20 gr cornstarch
15 gr flour
1/2 vanilla bean(s)


Fill a saucepan with the milk.
Add the vanilla bean seeds and scraped vanilla bean.
Heat on a medium temperatur just until it starts to boil.

While the milk is heating: get your mixer ready.
Mix the egg yolks with the sugar until white and fluffy.
Add the flour and cornstarch and mix.
The milk should be close to the boiling point by now.
Add a little bit of the hot milk and mix.

Add the mixture to the milk in the saucepan.
Heat it on a low temperature.
Keep stirring to prevent the custard from burning.
As soon as the custard starts boiling again, it's ready!
Remove the vanilla bean before using.
