Step by step method:

  1. Break the eggs and separate egg whites from the egg yolks. For this recipe the egg whites are not needed. Collect the egg yolks in a small skillet pot.
  2. Measure the tablespoon of sugar, the two tablespoons of vanilla sugar and the two tablespoons of corn flour/corn starch into the skillet pot and stir until smooth.
  3. Split the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the vanilla seeds into the smooth egg, sugar and flour blend.
  4. Fill the blend up with the 350ml of milk and merge everything together even add the empty vanilla pod. It still holds a lot of flavor in it.
  5. Heat the well combined mix while stirring consistently. Continue stirring until the sauce has thickened. It is important that the sauce does NOT reach boiling point. When thickened take it off the heat and serve it.

Rice cake, millet cake, ice, chocolate pudding, hot raspberries, oven baked apples with raisins
