    1 vanilla pod, halved lengthways, seeds scraped with a knife
    250ml whole milk
    300ml double cream
    2 British Blacktail Large Free Range Eggs

    4. Pour over the custard mixture and leave to soak for 15 minutes. Sprinkle over the flaked almonds and remaining sugar and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and softly set.
