  • Preparation

    Put the milk into a saucepan on the heat with 4 spoons of sugar and the vanilla until it begins to cook. Meanwhile, beat the 6 egg yolks, two spoons 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 preparation 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.
