Ingredients & Prep
250 ml Whole milk
3 Egg yolks
50 g Caster sugar
10 g Plain flour
10 g Cornflour
1 tsp Vanilla extract or paste
In a bowl place the egg, sugar, both flours & Vanilla, whisk altogether into a smooth paste.
Pour milk into a saucepan & bring to a simmer, then pour the hot milk into the egg mixture whisking vigorously until all the milk is mixed in well, pour mixture back in to the saucepan.
Place pan on a low heat & stir with a wooden spoon constantly getting into the corners to stop it catching, don't worry if it goes lumpy just give it a good whisk, take off the heat when thick & it starts to bubble.
When cooked place a layer of cling film over the surface of the patisserie to stop a skin forming, allow to cool, then it will keep in the fridge up to a 3 days.

This is best used for pastries as it has a firmer texture then custard.
