Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F - Gas 4)

Method

  1. Add the milk to a pan, add the vanilla pod (or essence) and bring up to a slow simmer.
  2. remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 20 minutes - no need to wait if using vanilla essence.
  3. Remove the vanilla pod.
  4. In a bowl, beat the eggs and egg yolks with 120 g (4 oz) of the sugar until fluffy.
  5. Gradually stir in the vanilla milk.
  6. Using a fine sieve, strain the liquid into a jug (to make pouring easier).
  7. In a non-stick pan, add 1 tablespoon water and the remaining sugar and heat until caramelised.
  8. Remove from the heat and pour into individual moulds, rotating the moulds so the sides are also covered.
  9. Pour the custard into the moulds and place in a deep roasting tin and add boiling water to the tin so it half covers the moulds.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes, leave to cool and then turn out the moulds.
