  • 8 egg yolks
  • 2 cans of condensed sugared milk (+/- 397 g each)
  • 200 ml alcohol 94° or liquor with high %
  • 250 ml white sugar syrup (or sugar cane syrup)
  • 15 drops of vanilla essence or rhum


  1. mix the yolks until they look pale yellow (rubban)

  2. add the cans of condensed milk constantly stirring.

  3. Add the alchohol or liquor.

  4. Add sugar syrup carefully (keep stirring)

  5. Add essence (vanilla or rhum or both)

  6. Pour in a glass jar and let it rest in the fridge until thickend. Store in the fridge.

  7. This eggnog is eaten with a spoon out of small glasses. You can also put it on icecream, cakes... Pour it in small glass jars as a Christmas present Use the egg whites to make a big Pavlova, or small meringue tarts When kept in the fridge it will last a few weeks. If you don't have any vanilla (rhum) essence you can add a glass of rhum, whisky to the alcohol. But than use a little less alcohol.
