Instructions
  1. To make custard, heat cream in a pan to scalding temperature
  2. Meanwhile whisk remaining ingredients together with a balloon whisk
  3. Pour piping hot cream over egg mix, whisking all the time.
  4. Once smooth and beginning to thicken, return custard to pan on a very low heat and whisk until you feel it start to thicken further. At that point quickly pour custard back into your bowl and keep whisking again to prevent over-cooking of eggs. It should be the consistency of thick cream. Set aside to cool.
  5. Any leftover will be fine until the next day if stored covered in the fridge.
