When you are too impatient or lazy to make a traditional milktart but you really, absolutely, must have one……
3 egg yolks
700ml + 50ml milk
ground cinnamon for dusting
Add the sugar and cornstarch to a mixing bowl and stir through.
Add the egg yolks and 50ml milk and mix together to make a smooth very runny paste. Set aside.
Add the 700ml milk to a saucepan set over medium high heat and bring to a boil.
Pour the egg and milk mixture into the boiling milk in a thin stream while whisking vigorously.
Turn the heat down to medium, keep stirring and wait for the mixture to thicken.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour the custard into cups and dust with some ground cinnamon.
Serve slightly warm.
