5 egg yolks

100 grams castor sugar

Place cream, vanilla, bay leaf and lemon zest in a heavy-based saucepan

time, allow to stand for 20 minutes to let the ingredients infuse.

whisk until the mixture turns paler and is light and fluffy.

the warm cream to the sugar and egg yolks. When it is thoroughly

combined pour the mixture to the pan.

Cook over a low heat, stirring continuously until the custard starts to

thicken, about 4-5 minutes. Do not allow the mixture to boil. Pour the

custard into 6 medium ramekins and allow to cool in a fridge preferably

over night.

About 20 minutes before serving, sprinkle remaining sugar over the set

custards. Place under a very hot grill until the sugar is melted and


Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes until the sugar has formed a hard crust.
