In a jug put eggs and cornflour whisk until combined and fluffy. Add some of the warm milk. Then put this all back into the remainder of the milk and add the caramel. Whisk slowly until the caramel has dissolved and milk turned a nice butterscotch colour. Put the pan on a low heat. You now need to be very patient and stir with a wooden or plastic spoon. Keep stirring so that the eggs donÃ¢ÂÂt curdle. Keep heating for about 10mins, time it as it seems an age, and it should then all of a sudden become a beautiful thick custard consistency. Strain this into a jug/plastic container. It will catch any large pieces of egg, cornflour or caramel. Cover with clingfilm to prevent it forming a skin.
