How to make fresh custard

I would have to say fresh custard is always better than the powdered custard.  I find fresh made custard is more yummy and comforting but the powdered stuff tastes like plastic!  When you will have a taste of this custard,  I don't think you will ever buy the powdered stuff ever again.  This recipe is so quick and easy.

You will need:

3 egg yolks
1/2 cup of caster sugar
2tbs of corn flour
250ml of cream
170ml of milk
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

In a saucepan, add egg yolks, caster sugar and corn flour.  Mix well.  Then add the cream and milk and mix til smooth.  Put the pan on medium high heat and beat til it thickens and boils.  Do not over beat cause it will curdle.  Remove from heat and add in the vanilla extract and mix.   Transfer into bowl and cover with cling wrap to prevent from skin forming.
