What you need: 

400ml semi-skimmed milk
6 large egg yolks 
2 level tbsp sweetener granules  
1 level tbsp cornflour 
1 tsp vanilla extract 

What you do: 

1. Bring the milk to the boil in a small non-stick saucepan over a medium heat. Whisk the egg yolks and sweetener together in a heatproof bowl until thick and pale, then gradually whisk in the cornflour.
