Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the cream, milk and cardamom seeds in a saucepan. Heat until steaming then remove from the heat, pop a lid on the pan and set aside for 20 mins for the flavours to infuse.

  • STEP 2

    Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar then whisk in the flour. Pour in a little of the warmed milk mixing well to incorporate then gradually whisk in the remaining liquid.

  • STEP 3

    Rinse out the pan, then sieve the milk mixture back in to remove the cardamom pods. Cook over a low to medium heat, stirring near constantly for 4-5 mins until you have thick custard that coats the back of a spoon. Pour over your favourite pud, or eat the whole lot with a spoon.
