  • 1/2 pint milk
  • 1/2 pint double cream
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 2 tsps coriander seeds lightly crushed
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 tsps cornflour
  • 3 oz caster sugar
  • Demerara or soft light brown sugar


  • Pour the milk and cream into a heavy-based saucepan. Add the spices and vanilla pod and heat gently until almost, but not quite, boiling. Allow to cool slightly
  • Beat the egg yolks, cornflour and sugar together until light in colour.
  • Strain the milk and cream mixture gradually onto the egg yolks, beating between additions.
  • Pour the egg and cream mixture back into the pan and place over a gentle heat. Bring the mixture to just below boiling point very slowly, stirring constantly, to prevent curdling. Continue stirring, until the mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Remove the custard from the heat and strain it into lour ramekins or custard cups. Chill until set.
  • When set, put the custards into a roasting pan and surround them with ice. Preheat a grill to the highest temperature.
  • Sprinkle a thin layer of sugar over the top of each custard and place under a grill, until the sugar melts and caramelizes.
  • Before serving, chill the custards in the refrigerator, until the sugar layer is crisp.
