Put the milk and the vanilla in a saucepan on the heat and bring to the boil. Remove the vanilla pod and add the milk to the egg mixture gradually. Put the custard back on the heat and continue cooking until it comes to the boil, continuing to stir. Allow to cool for half an hour in the fridge and add the raisins and the sloe brandy. Line a round greased mould with 2/3 of the dough, fill with the cold custard and cover with the rest of the dough. Paint with beaten egg and put into an oven preheated to 160ºC for 45 to 50 minutes.
