Classic custard cream recipe. If you want it thicker the trick is to use 3 tablespoons of flour or starch per liter of milk. Stir that into the egg/sugar mixture well so no clumps are left. Also, instead of whole eggs use egg yokes, make the custard as usual, then wait to cool to room temp and add the cooled cream slowly, while beating, to hard beaten egg whites (so they look like whipped cream). Beating the egg whites separately will give the cream more texture and thickness.

Super simple and delicious added vanilla and put on direct heat since the double boiler wasn't working for me and that did the trick just stirred continuously until it was the right consistency

I liked the fact that it was just simple ingredients although i added vanilla. Not overadorned with cluttery extras!
