Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add eggs, sugar, and a pinch of salt to a bowl.
  • Whisk the mixture properly.
  • Add milk and 3/4 of the cream to a saucepan and heat it till the liquid starts to steam.
  • Mix the egg batter with milk and cream.
  • Re-heat the milk-egg mixture on medium heat now, and keep stirring it until the mixture is thick enough to stick to the spoon.
  • Add nutmeg and vanilla extract to the mix and allow it to cool. You can keep it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days for optimum temperature and consistency levels.

The FDA recommends heating - or pasteurizing - the mixture to 160 degrees to avoid any risk of salmonella.
