Creamy homemade custard

Creamy homemade custard
  • 2 large free-range egg yolks
  • 1 heaped tbsp cornflour
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways, or ½ tsp good-quality vanilla extract
  • 250ml whole milk
  • 250g Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream

Add the egg yolks to a saucepan with the cornflour and sugar.

Scrape the vanilla seeds into the pan, or add the vanilla extract, and use a metal whisk to combine all the ingredients.

Next, gradually whisk in the milk and cream. Place the pan over a low heat and cook gently for 6-8 minutes, whisking constantly, until smooth and thick (do not allow the custard to boil.)

Take off the heat and imediately serve with your favourite puddings.
