  • 6 cups of whole milk
  • 6 egg yolks

  • Place 5 cups of the milk with the sugar and vanilla in a pot and bring to a boil, cook on low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Place the rest of the milk, egg yolks, corn starch and the condensed milk in a blender. Blend until well combined.
