🍴 Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole milk, divided use
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar

🔥 Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together ¼ cup of the milk with the cornstarch. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the remaining milk, cream, salt, and brown sugar. Heat over medium until steaming but not boiling.
  3. Whisk egg yolks in a separate bowl. Slowly stream ½ cup of the hot milk mixture into the yolks, whisking constantly.
