Makes 1 cup
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ¾ cup whole milk or coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Place the egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl and whisk until pale yellow. Place the milk in a heavy-bottom saucepan and bring just to a boil. Slowly whisk the hot milk into the egg/sugar mixture. Transfer the mixture back to the saucepan and stir over medium heat until the custard thickens, a few minutes. It should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir in the vanilla. Transfer to bowl or serving pitcher.
  2. Serve warm over apple cake.
