  • Pan size : medium saucepan

1 tablespoon (15g) unsalted butter

  2. Add water and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture bubbles and thickens.
  3. Remove from heat, add egg yolks one at a time whisking quickly to mix through.
  4. Stir in butter.
  5. Store in sterilised jars in the fridge for a week.

  • Cooking time : 50 to 60 minutes
  • Pan size : standard loaf pan (21cm x 11cm) or 20cm diameter cake pan
