Servings 4


  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon + additional cinnamon for garnish if desired
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 egg yolks
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Whipped cream cinnamon stick, and star anise for serving (optional)


  • In a small saucepan, combine milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.
  • Bring the mix to a low boil over low heat.
  • In the small bowl combine the egg yolks with the sugar, whisking until the mixture turns a light pale color.
  • While continuing to whisk, slowly add the heated milk mixture. Do not add too quickly as this would cook/scramble the eggs. Mix until ingredients are completely combined.
  • Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. The mixture should coat the back of the spoon.
  • Remove from heat and add the heavy cream. Stir.
  • Chill for several hours before serving.
  • Add whipped cream, cinnamon, cinnamon stick, or star anise when serving, if desired.
