1c Milk
1c Cream
1 Vanilla bean, split
5 Egg yolks
1/2c cup Castor Sugar

In a heavy saucepan, bring the milk, cream and vanilla bean (or a few drops vanilla essence) to simmer. In a bowl, whisk the sugar and egg yolks until light, then whisk in the heated milk. Rinse out the saucepan and return the mixture to the heat for around 10 mins, until the mixture thickens. Strain into a cold bowl to remove lumps. Serve warm or allow to cool (placing plastic wrap on the surface of the custard prevents it forming a skin.)
