Christmas with Thermione

I don't make custard very often so when I do it's usually for something special.  Making custard in Thermione is a doddle because there's no need to stand and stir and worry about spiltting or curdling or any other custard-disaster that I've created in the past.

This one is a pouring custard rather than a thick-set custard.  I used vanilla seeds and some essence because I wanted the pod for vanilla sugar.  Must look out for vanilla bean paste though - that sounds the best alternative.  Maybe Lakeland or Hobbycraft - or Amazon?

Enough waffle.  here's the recipe.

250g milk
2 egg yolks
beans from 1/4 vanilla bean plus a little bit of vanilla essence (the proper sort) or 1/4 tsp vanilla paste
30g sugar
1/2 tbsp cornflour (or ordinary plain flour is fine, better maybe)

Place all ingredients in the bowl in the order above.  Briefly zizz on 6  to mix everything (don't do this if you've added the bean pod).

Cook for 8 mins at 90, speed 4

Give it a good zizz
