  • As soon as the milk comes to a boil, gradually add the egg yolk mixture while whisking continuously.
  • Transfer all of the mixture to the pot and place over heat.
  • Whisk continuously for 2-3 minutes, until the cream thickens.
  • Remove from heat, add the butter and whisk until it melts.

  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.

To assemble
