To make some custard, you will need:

4 eggs

120g of sugar

a vanilla pod or some vanilla sugar

a pinch of salt

35cl of whole milk

35g of cornstarch

35g of butter

Pour the milk into a pan and heat gently

Split open the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds.

put the vanilla pod and seeds in the pan, then bring to a boil.

In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture becomes pale

Add the corn starch and continue whisking, like this

Remove the pan from the heat

Take out the vanilla pod

Pour the contents of the pan into the bowl, mix energetically.

Then pour the mixture into the pan and bring to a boil while whisking continuously

As soon as the custard starts to boil, turn off the heat and pour it once again into the bowl to prevent it from cooking further.

If you wait too long before turning off the heat, the custard will be over-cooked and lose its smoothness.

Leave the custard to cool for a few minutes, then incorporate the butter and whisk vigorously.
