Ingredients for 6 people: 6 egg yolks 6 soup spoons of flour 1 soup spoon of cornflour 1½l of milk 2 sticks of vanilla ground cinnamon


Put the milk into a saucepan with 4 spoonfuls of sugar and the vanilla until it begins to cook. Meanwhile, beat the 6 egg yolks, two spoonfuls of sugar and the cornflour in a receptacle. When the milk comes to the boil, remove it from the heat, remove the vanilla sticks and add it to the egg yolk mixture slowly, without stopping whisking. Put the mixture in a saucepan on the heat, stirring it all the time with a wooden spoon. Before it comes to the boil, remove it from the heat and keep stirring it until the custard is ready. Strain it through a large sieve and tip it into a deep serving dish or into individual dishes. Put it in the fridge until it is time to serve it.


Before serving, sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon.
