Put the egg yolks, cornflour and sugar in a bowl and beat until smooth.
Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring to the boil, then slowly pour it onto the egg yolk mixture, stirring thoroughly.
Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens to a custard consistency. It should reach 82°C (180°F) on a cooking thermometer. Remove from the heat and strain into a bowl. Serve hot or leave to cool before using or serving.


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 tsp cornflour
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 600 ml (1 pint) semi-skimmed milk
