Excellent recipe. For those confused about the second half of milk mixture, it's in the saucepan, to which you add the egg and 1/2 milk mixture.
This recipe was not very good. The end result was a gritty, thick and gooey mess! I tried to break it down and I think it was the cornstarch. And the confusing reference as to where the other half of the milk mixture goes and when was very, very unprofessional.
Sorry, just not a good experience.
It came out creamy and delicious. I made half the amount and used 3 duck yolks instead of 4 chicken yolks.
Great recipe. Just discard the 2nd half of the mix. Large bowl does not mean the largest bowl you own. Stirring it for 18 miniutes is a workout but so worth the beautiful results.
Made this as a dessert for a Spanish tapas birthday celebration. Turned out amazing.
The reason it doesn’t say when to add the second half of warm milk is because you don’t have to. Add half of the warm milk To the egg and sugar mixture, follow directions and then add that mix back into the pot with the rest of the milk and whisk continuously to completion.
At least that’s how I interpreted the recipe and it turned out beautifully.
