Heat the milk with the vanilla pod until just boiling.
Mix together the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour to get a smooth paste.
Pour over the milk and stir well. Remove, wash and dry the vanilla pod to re-use in another recipe.
Strain the mixture back into a clean saucepan and, stirring constantly, cook gently until the custard thickens.
