INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brewed espresso
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 large egg yolks

METHOD:

  1. Prepare an ice-water bath. Combine milk, cream, 1/2 cup sugar, the espresso, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together egg yolks and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl.
  3. Gradually whisk half the hot milk mixture into the egg-yolk mixture. Pour egg-yolk mixture into saucepan, and whisk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.Pour through a fine sieve into a heatproof bowl set in ice-water bath.
  4. Let cool, stirring occasionally. Place plastic wrap on surface of custard to prevent a skin from forming, and refrigerate 2 hours.
