    Meanwhile, make crème anglaise. Bring milk and cream almost to the boil in a small saucepan. Whisk egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth, gradually whisk hot milk into egg yolk mixture. Return mixture to pan, stir with a wooden spoon over medium-low heat until custard thickens and coats the back of the spoon. Do not boil.
