Whole milk
1.5 L
Madagascar vanilla bean
Caster sugar
Caster sugar
250 g, for caramel

Step 01

Without stirring, heat the sugar for the caramel in a small saucepan over low heat. Once the crystals have melted and picked up some colour, carefully pour into moulds. 


Step 02

Pour 1 litre of milk into a cooking pot. With a sharp knife, split the vanilla bean in half and use the tip of the knife to scrape out the seeds, then add both the seeds and pod to the milk. 

Step 03

Gently heat the milk for 10 minutes without allowing it to come to a boil so it’s infused with the vanilla. Add the sugar and, when it’s dissolved, stir in the remaining milk in order to lower the temperature of the mixture so it won’t begin to cook the eggs.


Step 04

Whisk the eggs in a bowl then pass through a strainer to remove and discard any shell fragments. Stir the eggs into the milk mixture then pour into the moulds.


Step 05
