Ingredients

  • 300ml whole milk
  • 300ml single cream
  • 1 vanilla pod , halved with seeds scraped out and reserved
  • 7 large egg yolks
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 100ml Calvados

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat milk, cream, vanilla pod and the vanilla seeds to a boil. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 20 mins, then discard the vanilla pod.

  • STEP 2

    Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until pale. Add to the milk mixture and whisk to combine. Cook very gently until thickened – when it’s ready, the custard should coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and add the Calvados. Serve warm or cold.
