  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ¼ cup cornstarch

  • 3 cups milk

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 egg yolks, beaten

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add enough milk to make thick paste. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring milk to a boil. Stir in brown sugar mixture, return to a boil, and cook for 1 minute.

  2. Place egg yolks in small bowl. Temper the yolks by quickly stirring in about 1/4 of hot milk mixture. Pour yolk mixture back into hot milk mixture, and return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in butter and vanilla until butter is melted. Pour into bowls, and let cool slightly.
